Buffalo Business Blitz, a partnership with the City of Buffalo and Starz24, is being administered by WEDI. The distribution of the Fund will provide financial assistance awards of $2,500 to small businesses financially impacted by COVID-19 through layoffs, furloughs, or other hardships. To be eligible, the business's principal location must be in the City of Buffalo and/or Erie County. Application closes on Friday, January 15th, 2021 at 9:00 am.
We have received more applications than we have funding for at this time. We will continue working toward our fundraising goal and aspire to getting more financial assistance awards to businesses in need. Please fill out this form to provide your information and we will contact you as soon as more money is available in the fund.
