City of Chicago: Together Now Grant Application OPEN
September 14 - November 6
The Together Now fund is meant to provide small businesses and not-for-profits in Chicago with the resources they need to reopen and continue to operate. The second round involves one grant type: operational cost support grant. The operational cost grant must be used for necessary operating cost needs (e.g., replenishment of inventory) that arose as a result of economic losses experienced due to COVID-19 on or after March 1, 2020.
Grants may not be used for severance pay, workforce bonuses other than hazard pay or overtime, property taxes, legal settlements, expenditures that will be reimbursed through another federal program, or reimbursement to other parties for goods or services previously donated.
Eligibility: The Together Now Fund is open to small businesses or not-for-profits in Chicago that have experienced economic distress and significant losses due to COVID-19 on or after March 1, 2020.
