Rhode Island Rebounds Small Business Grant Program

Rhode Island Rebounds Small Business Grant Program

En Español Aquí

Rhode Island Rebounds is an initiative by the State to invest in its children, families, workers, housing, and small business owners through the utilization of the American Rescue Plan State Fiscal Recovery Funds. This investment includes funds to assist small businesses as well as hard-hit tourism, hospitality, and event industries impacted by COVID-19. Rhode Island Rebounds is made possible thanks to Governor Dan McKee’s proposal and unanimous approval by the Rhode Island House and Senate.

We will continue to provide additional information over the coming days and weeks about how businesses can access assistance through these programs. You may sign up to receive updates on the programs as they become available using the sign-up feature at the bottom of the page.
