We are here to help. Please visit COVID-19 Resources for the latest information.

Today, many Atlanta small business communities need help adapting to COVID-19 to rise up, recover and thrive once again. Through the Resurgence Grant Fund, eligible businesses and non-profits may be awarded grants of up to $40,000 to reimburse costs incurred (after March 3, 2021) by adapting business operations in a post-COVID environment. Through this program, Invest Atlanta seeks to lessen the negative financial impact to businesses and cover costs associated with operating safely during the pandemic.
