New COVID-19 Pandemic Response Small Business Grant Programs / Nuevas programas de subvenciones para pequeños negocios en respuesta a la pandemia COVID-19

Applications now being accepted for two new grant programs for Massachusetts small businesses negatively impacted by COVID-19
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has made $75 million available to support small businesses negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds will be administered through two different grant programs, the New Applicant Grant Program and the Inclusive Grant Program, made available through Massachusetts Capital Growth Corporation.
The $75 million will be focused on small businesses that employ between two and 50 people and that have annual revenues between $40,000 to $2,500,000 based on 2020 Federal Business Tax Returns. $25 million will be directed toward businesses that did not qualify for previous MGCC grants because of a lack of revenue loss in 2020 (New Applicant Grant Program); and $50 million will be directed to businesses that reach underserved markets and historically underrepresented groups, or are minority-, women-, or veteran-owned businesses, or are owned by individuals with disabilities or who identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community (Inclusive Grant Program).
Under both programs, grants will range from $10,000 to $75,000, and will be capped at the lesser of $75,000 or three months of operating expenses. Grant funding can be used for employee and benefit costs, mortgage interest, rent, utilities, interest on debt, and costs to pivot the company due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Click here for more information about both programs and to apply. Applications must be submitted online by Monday, April 4, 2022 at 11:59pm.
MCCI will be holding information sessions via Zoom every Tuesday in March to help you understand both programs, eligibility, approved use of funds, required documentation, and how to submit an application. Click below to sign up.
Ahora se aceptan solicitudes para dos nuevos programas de subvenciones para pequeñas empresas de Massachusetts afectadas negativamente por COVID-19
La Mancomunidad de Massachusetts ha puesto a disposición $75 millones para apoyar a las pequeñas empresas afectadas negativamente por la pandemia de COVID-19. Estos fondos se administrarán a través de dos programas de subvenciones diferentes, el Programa de Subsidios para Nuevos Solicitantes y el Programa de Subsidios Inclusivos, disponibles a través de Massachusetts Capital Growth Corporation.
Los $75 millones se enfocarán en pequeñas empresas que emplean entre dos y 50 personas y que tienen ingresos anuales entre $40,000 y $2,500,000 según las declaraciones de impuestos federales del negocio de 2020. $25 millones se destinarán a empresas que no calificaron para subvenciones anteriores de MGCC debido a la falta de pérdida de ingresos en 2020 (Programa de Subsidios para Nuevos Solicitantes); y $50 millones se destinarán a empresas que llegan a mercados desatendidos y grupos históricamente subrepresentados, o son empresas propiedad de minorías, mujeres o veteranos, o son propiedad de personas con discapacidades o que se identifican como miembros de la comunidad LGBTQ+ (Programa de Subsidios Inclusivos).
Bajo ambos programas, las subvenciones serán entre $10,000 y $75,000, y tendrán un tope de $75,000 o tres meses de gastos operativos, lo que sea menor. Los fondos de la subvención se pueden utilizar para los costos de los empleados y los beneficios, los intereses de la hipoteca, el alquiler, los servicios públicos, los intereses de la deuda, y costos para pivotar la compañía debido a la pandemia de COVID-19.
Haga clic aquí para obtener más información sobre ambos programas y para solicitar. La fecha límite para solicitar es el lunes 4 de abril de 2022 a las 11:59pm.
MCCI llevará a cabo sesiones informativas todos los martes de marzo para ayudarle a comprender ambos programas, la elegibilidad, el uso aprobado de fondos, la documentación requerida y cómo entregar una solicitud. Haga clic a continuación para registrarse.
