KEEP THE FAITH FUND SMALL BUSINESS GRANT PROGRAM
The Keep the Faith (KTF) Fund Small Business Grant Program was created to provide relief to businesses located in Belfast that have had to close or experienced a significant reduction in business since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Belfast Mayor and Council recognize federal and state loan programs are available but not immediate, and we hope that this program will provide a small amount of help for our businesses during this difficult time.
