Welcome to the
Providence Rescue Plan

Over the next three years, Providence will receive $166 million dollars from the U.S. Treasury to make a once-in-a-generation, transformative investment in our City’s future. Rescue Plan funds can be used to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency or its negative economic impacts.

Submit Proposals

Organizations or individuals who have detailed, proposed uses of funds for the Providence Rescue Plan are invited to submit proposals.

Apply for a Small Business Grant

Beginning October 15, 2021, you are eligible to apply for a microgrant of $2,500 if your business was negatively impacted by COVID-19. The grant program is made possible with the City’s American Rescue Plan funding.

The COVID-19 pandemic created an economic and public health crisis, especially felt in Providence’s hardest hit communities. People of color, immigrants and low-wage workers in Providence, and across the state, are facing a deep economic crisis.

The City of Providence is committed to a recovery that centers racial equity, sustainability, and an inclusive economy. The Providence Rescue Plan is part of a federal coordinated effort to bring direct and immediate relief to families and workers.

A Resiliency and Recovery Task Force has been formed to provide recommendations on how to use this money to the City of Providence. The COVID-19 Recovery and Resiliency Task Force is made up of Providence community leaders who are committed to community engagement and ensuring that funding spent through the Providence Rescue Plan goes where it is needed most.

Democracy only works when we engage. Do not miss this opportunity to make your voice heard.
