Regional Relief and Recovery Fund

COVID-19 has affected everyone.  Many are going through hard times, cutting costs in order to survive. Community Futures Middlesex is here to support your business through these challenging times.

The Federal Government has provided resources to help small businesses and entrepreneurs in Middlesex County endure the current economic challenges with a principal goal of helping you to retain your staff. The Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF) provides more than $1 million to our region for small businesses in need, which is available at 0% interest until the end of March 2023, with the potential to forgive 25% of the loan if 75% is paid back by March 31, 2023. The maximum amount for each RRRF loan is $40,000.
