As part of the federally funded American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA), the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity is offering an economic stimulus program—Back to Business (B2B) grant program for those organizations and businesses that meet the program’s eligibility guidelines.

The $250 million B2B grant program seeks to provide small businesses hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic with recovery grants.  B2B is part of Governor Pritzker’s $1.5 billion economic recovery plan, aimed toward a swift and equitable deployment of ARPA funds that have been designated for Illinois to assist in business recovery from the COVID pandemic.

For more information on the B2B grant program, including eligibility requirements and online application, visit the State of Illinois website.
