In April, The Fitting Room was awarded the Small Business COVID-19 RELEIF Grant from the Maryland Department of Commerce. We used this grant for operation fees, insurance, internet, professional memberships, and software.
To support Maryland’s small businesses facing continued financial impacts from the novel coronavirus, the state established through bipartisan legislation the new Maryland Small Business COVID-19 RELIEF Grant Program in 2021 with $10 million in state RELIEF Act funding.
The grant offers working capital to assist certain Maryland small businesses with disrupted operations due to COVID-19. Grant assistance is intended to provide interim relief complementing actions with its bank, business interruption insurance, and financial partners.
