CDBG MicroBusiness Support Funds

The City of Amesbury is partnering with the City of Newburyport to submit an application to Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) COVID-19 funding to support businesses who have been adversely affected by COVID-19. 

The funding can be used for small businesses with 5 or fewer employees, with owners of low to moderate income level.

The funds could be used for working capital to cover business costs, such as rent, staffing, and utilities. 

In order to submit a competitive application, we would like your help determining how many qualifying businesses exist in our community. Please fill out this 3 question survey. It would be very helpful to get a better understanding what the needs are in Amesbury. Your responses will only be shared anonymously or in aggregate.
