Aloha,

We continue to keep the Maui community top of mind during the ongoing recovery efforts following the devastating wildfires. Our Chamber has been working with the U.S. Chamber to seek financial relief for Maui-based businesses, especially from the Lahaina area, many who still haven’t received much support and resources.

Today, we are honored to announce a new recovery opportunity for Maui businesses.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and American Express have opened the Maui Small Business Recovery Grant Program, which supports Maui-based small businesses impacted by the devastating wildfires of August 2023. The program will provide 100 businesses with $5,000 grants and business coaching to help them rebuild and grow their business. 

To be eligible for a grant, businesses must:   

  • Employ between three and twenty individuals (including owners),
  • Have at least one physical or online business location in Maui (established on or prior to August 1, 2023),
  • Have incurred financial loss due to the wildfires, and
  • Have a related financial need.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, May 1 at 11:59PM HDT. For any questions, please contact resilience@uschamber.com. 

Mahalo,
