The federal Paycheck Protection Program officially ended on Monday but there still are many programs available to help small businesses, including grants for business assistance groups to support socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs. 

The new Community Navigator Pilot program, launched by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), is offering grants of up to $5 million to nonprofits, chambers of commerce, and tribal and government agencies to conduct outreach to small businesses that were left out of previous federal relief efforts.
