Assistance for Fitchburg Businesses

The City of Fitchburg Community and Economic Development Authority’s (CEDA) Forward Fitchburg Biz Boost Loan Program is available for local small businesses to utilize as they reopen from the COVID-19 crisis. Learn more about the program and apply here.

The Fitchburg Community and Economic Development Authority has modified the guidelines of the Forward Fitchburg Biz Boost Loan to increase the eligible revenue limit to less than $2.5 million. The funding is available to help with the costs associated with the reopening and relaunch of your business due to COVID. The applications are due on the 15th of each month and will continue until all funds are allocated or until December 15th. The loan guidelines have been slightly modified so please read them carefully as your business may have not been eligible before but might now qualify.

The temporary expanded outdoor premise program provides for consideration of a temporary change of premise to allow for expanded outdoor seating due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Temporary Expanded Outdoor Premise Application and Guidelines can be found here.

We are all in this together but we are Fitchburg strong and will continue to support our business community in way that we are able. We ask that residents to patronize our businesses as these owners are our friends, neighbors and community members.
