About The RESTORE ATL Grant

The Metro Atlanta Chamber, through the support of its investors in the metro Atlanta business community, implemented the RESTORE ATL Grants to support Black-owned small- and medium-sized businesses adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the program, eligible businesses can apply for immediate gap assistance grants of $5,000-$10,000.

The Metro Atlanta Chamber is proud to announce the launch of a second round of the RESTORE ATL Grants to support additional companies as they navigate this unprecedented crisis.
