Small businesses can again apply for federal grant assistance through the City of Jonesboro’s Microenterprise Business Accelerator.

As part of Jonesboro’s Community Development Block Grant funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the City this year has $50,000 to distribute among small businesses that employ five or fewer employees.

Applications can be found online at or picked up at the City Grants and Community Development Department, 300 S. Church St. Proposals are due no later than July 12 by 4:00 pm. 

“We provided small amounts of aid to several businesses last year,” Mayor Harold Perrin said. “And a little bit can mean a whole lot when a small business is trying to get off the ground, so I’m pleased that our grants department has identified these opportunities.”
