Rockville Small Business Impact Fund

Rockville Small Business Impact Fund

Target Applicants
The Rockville Small Business Impact Fund (SBIF) will offer financial assistance to qualified, small- and medium-sized businesses to promote economic development throughout the City of Rockville, especially start-ups and businesses that lack the capital to sustain growth.


The fund aligns with REDI’s strategy to foster economic vitality through projects that support the Mayor and Council’s vision for economic development and offer substantial public benefits, including:

  • Retaining and creating new jobs, with an emphasis on traditionally under-served populations.
  • Retaining and expanding key business uses and services.
  • Encouraging positive social impact.
  • Supporting business-to-community engagement.

Examples of funded projects include:

  • Marketing
  • Facade and signage upgrades
  • Tenant improvements
  • Equipment purchase

There are two application deadlines each year–September 30 and April 30. Prospective applicants are required to meet with REDI’s Deputy Director, Richelle Wilson (richelle@rockvilleredi.org or 301-355-2214) prior to submitting their application. Applications received after each deadline will be considered in the next review cycle. Applications will be reviewed/approved until all available funds are awarded.
