WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: Facebook Small Business Grants Program (Episode 15)

StartupNation continues to support small businesses and keep them informed regarding various programs of relevancy that can assist them in this most challenging time. On this morning’s WJR Business Beat, Jeff shares news of the Facebook Small Business Grants Program.

In an effort to keep small businesses operating, Facebook is offering $100 million in cash grants for up to 30,000 eligible small businesses.

Listen below to hear more from Jeff:

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, said of the grant program: “Small businesses are the heartbeat of our communities, and many of the people who run these businesses are heavily affected by the crisis – especially as more and more people sensibly stay home. The longer the crisis goes on, the greater the risk to small businesses and to the livelihoods of their owners and employees.”

To receive updates and news on the grant program, sign up at facebook.com. And for a list of grant programs and additional assistance for small businesses amidst the COVID-19 crisis, review StartupNation’s list here.
