Small Business Relief Funds Awarded

The application for the Raleigh Small Business Relief Fund closed May 21, 2010 and 573* applications were received. 

As of Wednesday, June 10, 2020, 154 applicants were funded. Those businesses have been notified, and are in the process of being funded. This relief program is administered by our friends at the Carolina Small Business Development Fund. Please note: ACH transfers are not immediate and generally take 1 – 3 days to process.

Donations from the private sector and individuals are still being accepted to increase the total amount of funding available for Raleigh small businesses impacted by COVID-19 that meet the program requirements.

If your business was notified that it was a successful applicant and you’ve not received funding by Monday, June 15, 2020 please contact Angela Milton at Carolina Small Business Development Fund by phone at 919-355-4915 or by email at
