About

The Town of Glastonbury has established a Small Business Assistance Program (SBAP), to be funded through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The SBAP was developed to provide limited, one-time financial support to small businesses and nonprofits who were negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the SBAP, Glastonbury-based organizations who meet program eligibility requirements can apply for grants of up to $5,000 to help them sustain and grow their business in the current marketplace.

Application deadline: August 14, 2022
