SBAC Action Call – The Back to Business Grant Program

Urge Illinois Lawmakers to Allocate Additional Funds to the Back to Business Grant Program

Small businesses and local communities have been devastated by the pandemic. Many small businesses are still struggling, and the Delta variant threatens to further hinder their recovery. No more small businesses should fail because of this pandemic.

Illinois received over $8.127 billion from the federal government as part of the American Rescue Plan Act. However, policymakers have only allocated $250 million for struggling small businesses through the Back to Business grant program. These funds will likely run out, and as a result, some struggling businesses will receive grants and others will not. Illinois is still holding on to over $5 billion of federal funds. There is no reason that our state should pick winners and losers when there is funding to support struggling businesses that qualify for a grant.

This action call urges Illinois policymakers to promptly allocate additional funds to the Back to Business grant program before they run out. Please use this to reach out to your state legislators and pass it on to your networks. Together, we can let politicians know how important it is to immediately help struggling small businesses in Illinois.

 

Please take a moment and urge your State Lawmakers to support allocating more funds to the Back to Business grant program by filling out the form below. Together we can make our voices heard!
