Remarks from the Mayor's office 5/14/2020

"The Small Business Relief Fund grants are critical to help struggling small businesses across the city address challenges brought on by COVID-19," said Mayor Walsh. "These businesses are the backbone of our economy, and the lifeblood of our communities. I'm proud we are able to assist them  during this time, and am grateful to our partners who have stepped up in a big way to support Boston's neighborhood business community."  

He added that: "In our City of Boston program, 58% of the businesses receiving grants are owned by people of color, 48% are owned by women, 44% are owned by immigrants, 95% went to businesses with 15 or fewer employees."

The top 10 zip codes with the most recipients include East Boston, Jamaica Plain, Brighton, South End, Dorchester, Roslindale, and Roxbury.
The full list of recipients is posted online at boston.gov/business-relief.

An additional $5.5 million in funding is being added to fully fund all eligible grant requests that were submitted during the application process, which combines newly available federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development; as well as commitments from Citizens Bank and Eastern Bank. We will continue to share updates on new small businesses that are funded as that information becomes available.
