Facebook Launches $100M Small Business Grant Program

To support COVID-19 relief efforts in the Huntsville Data Center community, Facebook has launched a Small Business grant program.

Facebook is building a 970,000 square-foot data center in the North Huntsville Industrial Park. It was scheduled to be operational this year but construction has slowed due to the pandemic.

For the grant program, here is the link to apply.  When you click on the available location list, select Huntsville, AL/Madison County from the drop-down menu. You will then be taken to a partner page for the application component.

The application will be open until midnight May 6.

To be eligible, the business must have these qualifications:

  • Be a for-profit company
  • Have between 2 and 50 employees
  • Have been in business for over a year
  • Have experienced challenges from COVID-19
  • Be in or near a location where Facebook operates

Facebook invites businesses to join an overview of the Facebook Small Business Grant program, and to learn more about what Facebook is doing to support our communities as we navigate these unprecedented times.
