In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and impending National, State and Local level guidance, the Central Area Collaborative, looked to provide emergency grants to Central Area Neighborhood small businesses. The Central Area Collaborative sponsored 10 grants of $500, for the local neighborhood small businesses. While local and state leaders looked to figure out the best way to receive and disburse potential federal funding, the Central Area Collaborative’s Community Navigator, Gavin Amos, along with leadership council member Heyward Watson went out and provided much needed immediate relief in the form of $500.00 grants.

If you would like to help the Central Area Collaborative by donating funds that will be used to continue providing the $500.00 grants please use the link below
