The Downtown Amherst Foundation has awarded 27 businesses in town grants totaling $100,000. The foundation began raising money in April to help local businesses weather the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding arrives as more businesses open up and prepare for in-store services, shopping and dining.
The funds help business owners and staff struggling with lower customer volume while navigating staffing, services, and fiscal obligations like paying suppliers, while staying healthy and safe.
