MEDC Michigan Small Business Restart Program
In response to the economic impact of COVID-19, the State of Michigan has allocated $100 million of CARES Act funding to implement the Michigan Small Business Restart Program to support the needs of Michigan Businesses directly impacted by COVID-19. Of that, Macomb County has received 7.5 Million.
The Michigan Restart application period is now closed. Our team of reviewers are working hard to process all the applications received. This will take up to 4 - 6 weeks. Please do not contact us to check the status of your application. All other questions can be submitted through our online portal.
Businesses and nonprofits with 50 or fewer employees, worldwide, located in Michigan, who have NOT received a grant under Macomb County Sustainability Program are eligible to apply. At least 30 percent of the funds awarded under this program will be provided to women-owned, minority-owned or veteran-owned eligible businesses. In addition, nonprofits and homebased businesses will be given priority.
