Small Business Grants & Programs for COVID-19 Relief

Maryland - We're All In This Together

The state of Maryland and its local governments are offering a number of grants to help small businesses weather the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. These grants can be used for a number of essential business expenses, from purchases of Personal Protective Equipment to payroll expenses to marketing and communications needs.

Maryland received nearly $2.4 billion from the Coronavirus Relief Fund established through the CARES Act. Part of this allotment was used for each county to set up a COVID-19 relief program in order to assist businesses negatively impacted by the pandemic. Other funds are available through The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) DBE Business Development Reimbursement Program (BDRP).
