The Michigan Strategic Fund has approved a new rounding of funding, Michigan Survival Grants, to eligible small businesses affected by COVID-19 and the Gatherings and Mask Order issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Service. As with previous COVID-related funding opportunities, Ann Arbor SPARK will be administering these funds in our region on behalf of the state.

 Businesses that have been fully closed since November 18, 2020, may be eligible for up to $20,000 in grants, while those businesses that have been partially closed – or are otherwise open – may apply for grants up to $15,000. Funding through this program can be used to support working capital needs, such as payroll expenses, rent, mortgage payments, utility expenses and other similar expenses.

 The application for Michigan Survival Grants opens at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Please visit our website or the Michigan Economic Development Corp. website for additional information.

 In addition to the Michigan Survival Grants, a Michigan Stages Survival Program was also approved.  The Stages program will support the state’s live music and entertainment venues that have been negatively impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Online application for the Stages program will open at 9 a.m. on Thursday, January 21.

 Applications for the Michigan Stages Survival Program will be submitted to, and processed by, the Michigan Independent Venue and Promoter Association (MIVPA) who will recommend grant awards to the MEDC for disbursement by February 28, 2021. Program guidelines, FAQ, and other resources are available online.

 To address the financial hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis, Ann Arbor SPARK, Washtenaw County’s Office of Community & Economic Development, WCC’s Entrepreneurship Center and SBDC have developed an emergency fund that provides working capital grants in amounts up to $2,500 to qualifying small businesses.
