Small Business Grant Program

Union City Mayor/State Senator Brian Stack has announced the creation of a small business grant program to assist local businesses that may have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Mayor issued the following letter to small businesses to explain how the program works:

Dear Business Owners,

I hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy. I am writing to inform you of two programs that may be of assistance to you due to the financial impact caused to your business by the COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) pandemic.

I have created the Union City Small Business Grant Program through a federal grant given to the city. The grant was created in order to assistant small businesses who suffered an interruption of their businesses due to the pandemic. The grant program will offer up to $5,000 to cover eligible expenses incurred. Funding is limited and will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis. To apply, please visit or call the Office of the City Clerk at 201-348-5731.

The second program is through the Small Business Administration. They have both a grant and loan program to assist small businesses struggling to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information on these grants and loans, please contact the SBA at or 1-800-659-2955.

As programs are announced, I will inform you. More people are getting vaccinated than before and I am confident that there will be an end to the pandemic. We are all in this together and we will get through it. I am here for you so please call me any time, if I can be of assistance.
