DeKalb Chamber Awards Small Business Relief Microgrants
DEKALB COUNTY - The DeKalb Chamber Partnership awarded microgrants to four local small businesses in the amount of $500 each. The DeKalb County Small Business Relief Fund was established earlier this year through the Chamber to help local businesses overcome the economic impact of COVID-19.
The recipients of the microgrants include; Lyn-Maree’s Boutique, Michelle Glenn Photography, Forget Me Not, and Hair and Company Salon. Small businesses from anywhere in DeKalb County were invited to apply and chamber membership was not a criteria for eligibility.
The Chamber also partnered with Big Red Sports to sell #AllINDeKalb t-shirts and yard signs to not only contribute to the Small Business Relief Fund but also generate a sense of community and encourage people to support small businesses.
Carpenter stated that the Chamber is still receiving applications but at this time all funding has been exhausted. Should more funding be available the Chamber will award additional grants.
