In June 2020, the City of Charlotte launched its Open for Business initiative to support small business owners through their COVID-19 recovery. By providing access to capital and other resources, the program is intended to help businesses survive the recovery phase of the pandemic and help prepare businesses to thrive in a post-pandemic future. The initiative is supported by the City of Charlotte Small Business Community Recovery Task Force and Charlotte City Council Workforce and Development Committee.
