Gary/East Chicago COVID-19 Small Business Relief Fund

Purpose

Legacy Foundation and Indiana Black Expo have partnered in response to the urgent need for assistance to sustain Gary and East Chicago small businesses with their immediate financial challenges as a result of a demonstrated economic injury due to COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Small Business Relief Fund will prioritize providing assistance to small businesses through one-time grants ranging from $2,500-$5,000 per business.  Priority will be given to minority and woman owned businesses.

Initial funding is provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Donor Advised Fund at Legacy Foundation and Indiana Black Expo. We encourage additional gifts to this fund in order to provide further support for small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis — especially those run by women, people of color and immigrants.
