Pinellas CARES Local Small Business Grants: 
Pinellas CARES is now offering expanded grant funding for Pinellas-based businesses most affected by the pandemic: those that were required to shut down or whose customers were required to shut down or stop doing business.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to take their time to submit a full application, including all required documentation, for the quickest response. Grant awards will be made based on complete and eligible applications, not based on how early a partial application is submitted – submitting an incomplete application will delay the review process.


Businesses that make $3 million or less in gross annual revenue may qualify for up to $10,000 in grant assistance based on a sliding scale. A detailed list of all program qualifications and the online application can be found at:

Pinellas CARES Small Business GrantThe initial application period for Pinellas CARES Small Business Grants closed on June 30, 2020. All applications submitted before the deadline will be considered.
