The second round of $2,500 grants for DDA businesses facing financial hardships as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic are open through 11:59 p.m. Friday, June 5. They can be accessed by visiting the city of East Lansing’s website.

Businesses wishing to apply need to fall within the following criteria:
