Free PPE and Supplies for Small Businesses

Governor Raimondo has announced a collaboration with chambers of commerce and other associations to distribute 500,000 masks and much-needed disinfectant solution to our small businesses and non-profit organizations that are open or reopening and still need help accessing them.

Small businesses with 50 or fewer employees that are open or are reopening — including retailers, grocery stores, manufacturers, restaurants and service-based businesses — are able to access a month’s supply of product through these organizations.

In exchange for these supplies, businesses will need to fill out a contact form and show they’ve completed their COVID-19 control plan.
