About Main St. Matters

There is no doubt, small businesses are the heart of our communities. During these uncertain times, many of these businesses have faced financial challenges, and Better Business Bureau is here to help.

BBB Serving E. MA, ME, RI & VT is proud to launch Main St. Matters, a program that will offer emergency grants (does not need to be paid back) in the form of a $1,000 grant award for small businesses (1-20 employees) who have been financially impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know that Main St. businesses are the backbone of our economy. Their strong threads weave through our nation, tying communities together, and without them, we all suffer. It’s these businesses that have supported BBB services for over a century, so being able to give back in a time of crucial need is an honor.
