Grants of up to $50,000 to Michigan government agencies, organizations, and community development corporations to support Coronavirus (COVID-19) relief and recovery efforts. Grant recipients will disburse funds to strengthen and support local small businesses in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Match on Main – COVID-19 Response Program temporarily expands the MEDC’s Match on Main Program and will provide funds to local downtown management organizations to administer to eligible small businesses located in traditional commercial districts, including downtowns, neighborhood and commercial districts, or areas planned and zoned for concentrated commercial development.
This program serves as a tool for local units of government, Downtown Development Authorities, or other downtown management organizations that desire to support place-based businesses located in their traditional commercial districts by providing grant funding to eligible businesses in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
The local unit of government, Downtown Development Authority, Main Street organization, or other economic development organization that represents the downtown will serve as the grant applicant and may apply for funds to administer to small businesses located within their traditional commercial district. The applicant will determine which businesses are selected for inclusion in the application for support and at what desired grant amounts.
