Business in Carrboro

CARRBORO, N.C. -- The Carrboro Town Council has announced 30 small businesses will be receiving grants from the COVID-19 Mitigation Business Grant program. 

The Town Council voted on Tuesday, Dec. 14, to approve a list of 30 small businesses to receive more than $274,000 in grant assistance. The grant program was developed to help local small businesses mitigate the negative economic impacts businesses received as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program utilizes American Rescue Act Plan (ARPA) Federal funds awarded to the Town.

“We know how much our small, local businesses have struggled over the past year and a half, so we're pleased to be able to provide some direct financial assistance as they work to recover,”  said Mayor Damon Seils. 

The applications were reviewed, prioritized, and recommended by the COVID Loan and Grant Review Committee which also reviewed applications for the Town’s COVID Emergency Loan program in spring 2020 – just after the pandemic began. These additional funds bring the Town’s total COVID-19 support for small businesses to more than $630,000.

Congratulations to the businesses who received a grant: Acme, ArtsCenter, BowBarr, Carolina Core Pilates, Carolina Yoga Company, Carrboro Coffee Roasters, Carrburritos Taqueria, CommunityWorx, Coronato Pizza, Craftboro Brewing Depot, Firefly Carrboro, FIT on Main, Glasshalfull, Hope Renovations, Kumon of Carrboro, Love and Peace Boutique, Midway Barbershop, Montessori Academy of Carrboro, Neal's Deli, Open Eye, Present Day on Main, South Orange Rescue Squad, Steel String Brewery, The Beehive, Thirteen West, Triangle Bikeworks, Twin House Music, Vecino Brewing, Venable, and WomanCraft Gifts.
