Grants Available For Back To Business Grants

State Senator Doris Turner is asking all local businesses to take advantage of Back to Business grants.  The deadline for applying is October 13th.  These grants have allocated $250 million in funding for small businesses experiencing COVID-19 losses, and the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity will continue to award grants on a rolling basis.


State Senator Turner says that she is proud of the work done by the General Assembly to invest dollars in communities that need it.  The program acts a stimulus to give business resources needed to come back stronger and more resilient. 


Eligible businesses may visit the DCEO website.  Grants will be provided from $5,000 to $150,000 depending on how many losses were experienced. The administration will accept applications through October 13th.  


State Senator Turner says that businesses in the district received nearly $600,000 during the first wave of grants and this additional assistance will help many other businesses. For more information on these grants, visit https://www2.illinois.gov/dceo/pages/default.aspx .
