Good news. There is a new COVID-19 relief fund providing $5,000 emergency grants to every American. The relief fund is called the American Relief Fund. Every American is eligible (as long as you are at least 18 years old). The grants do not have to be paid back. The American Relief Fund will be providing individuals with $5,000 emergency grants until funds run out. Therefore, you should apply as soon as possible so your application is received before funds run dry.

The American Relief Fund is funded by franchisees of America’s largest corporations. Some of these corporations include Subway, Papa John’s, H&R Block and GNC. Franchisees have joined together to pool their funds to provide emergency relief funds for as many Americans as possible affected by the pandemic.

The application process is fairly simple. It should take you approximately 5 minutes to complete the application. Once your application has been submitted, you will be contacted by the American Relief Fund if you are awarded a grant. If you are awarded the American Relief Grant, a check for the amount of $5,000 will be sent to the mailing address you provide on the application. Be sure you enter the correct mailing address.

The American Relief Grant is over four times larger than the $1,200 stimulus payments provided by the government. This grant is much needed and will help a large number of Americans who have been hurt financially by this pandemic. Kudos to the franchisees who contributed funds to help bring this program to life. The American Relief Grant is also a life-saver to small businesses who missed out on relief funds from the SBA.
