Register for the Backing Small Businesses Grant Program Webinar

AMEX Backing Small Business

You are invited to join us for an informational webinar on Wednesday, March 15 at 9 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. MT / 11 a.m. CT / 12 p.m. ET about the Backing Small Businesses Grant Program* presented by American Express. We'll break down application dos and don'ts, share grantee success stories, explain the best ways for you to get the word out to businesses in your community, and more.  The Backing Small Businesses grant program launches on Monday, March 20 and will remain open through Friday, April 7.

In 2021, American Express and Main Street America created this grant program to help economically vulnerable U.S. small business owners recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and grow their businesses. To date, the program has provided $1.65 million in grants to 330 small business owners across the country.

Now in its second year, the program will increase the number of grants awarded and total funding to $2.3 million to further support small business owners in building their economic vitality and fostering a thriving community. On March 20, applications will open for 350 small business grants of $5,000 to eligible businesses in the U.S. and territories.

If awarded, businesses may also be eligible to be considered for an additional $25,000 Enhancement Grant! A limited subset of 25 grantees will be considered for the Enhancement Grant, which will allow those business owners the opportunity to further invest in the growth of their businesses.
