City of Charlotte COVID-19 Program

In partnership with the City of Charlotte's open for business initiative, we're proud to offer access to COVID-19 specific programming to educate and empower small businesses in the city.

About the Program

CSBDF has designed a customized technical assistance curriculum to help small businesses  to survive and thrive beyond COVID-19.


All City of Charlotte small businesses are eligible to receive an actionable recovery plan and business support services. Eligible small businesses that complete the needs assessments will receive a $10 gift card, and those that also complete at least one training will be entered into a lottery to receive a grant for $500 to support their recovery efforts. The first step is to complete the customized needs assessment form, linked on the right side of this page!
