Grant Recipients

At the conclusion of round one of the Alexandria Back to Business (B2B) grant program, 303 small businesses in the City of Alexandria, Virginia that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic received grant awards.  The ALX B2B Grants are being used to offset costs and/or investments related to reopening and rescaling their businesses.

The program was crafted in alignment with the City’s framework to ensure policy decisions advance race and social equity for all Alexandria residents. Parity was a key driver in the marketing of the ALX B2B grants program, to ensure that businesses from across the City and business owners from all races, genders, ethnicities, and ages were represented. AEDP is pleased with the results of the first round- grantees are located in every zip code in Alexandria, and four out of ten eligible grant recipients self-identified as a minority. All types of businesses that have a physical footprint were represented as well, including restaurants, retail, doctors, dentists, salons, daycares, fitness studios, and more.

Below is the final list of round one grant awardees, grouped by award amount, which is based on the business’s number of employees.
