Businesses Encouraged to Apply for Forgivable Loans After Cap Raised to $25,000

ACTON -- Acton Town Manager John Mangiaratti, Boxborough Town Administrator Ryan Fererra, Littleton Town Administrator Anthony Ansaldi, Maynard Town Administrator Gregory Johnson and Westford Town Manager Jodi Ross are pleased to announce that additional funding is now available for qualifying businesses through the five communities' micro enterprise grant program that launched in January to support businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 



The program, which initially made $10,000 forgivable loans available to businesses is now able to provide up to $25,000 per business to support them amid the pandemic recovery. The loans are meant to help cover costs such as rent, staffing and utilities for small businesses with five or fewer employees (including any owners), whose owner or owners meet low to moderate household income qualification as designated by United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in all five towns.



The micro enterprise grant program is the result of a partnership between the five communities and TRI, The Resource, Inc. The program is funded by a $1.6 million Community Development Block Grant. It has granted 15 forgivable loans since launching in January. The program has the capacity to provide many more grants for businesses in need.



Loans were made possible by a $1.6 million in Community Development Block Grant - Coronavirus Funding awarded to the Town of Acton through the CARES Act.
