Revive Alabama Business Grant Program
The Revive Alabama program, recently announced by Governor Kay Ivey, is a new opportunity for small businesses in Alabama impacted by COVID-19 closures and business interruptions to receive reimbursement for qualifying expenses.
The Revive Alabama program is not a product or service of America’s First Federal Credit Union. Applications must be directly to the Alabama Department of Revenue through their website.
Your business may qualify to receive up to $15,000 in reimbursements if you have not already received assistance for the same claim at the federal level. Reimbursements will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are exhausted.
Full details are available on the Revive Alabama homepage . The application process opens at noon on Thursday, July 16. The applications will close at midnight on July 25.
If you need help preparing your application, The Birmingham Business Alliance has a dedicated COVID-19 Business Response Team available to assist local business in applying for the Revive Alabama funds.

Paycheck Protection Program
The CARES (the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act recently passed into law includes a provision known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) designed to provide financial relief to help small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program, managed by the Small Business Administration (SBA), provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses with 500 or fewer employees to assist with payroll, healthcare costs, rent, utilities and mortgage interest.
We stand ready to work with you to prepare and submit your application for PPP funds.
You must be a member of the credit union with an established business account to apply for a PPP loan through AmFirst. New members may apply to open a business account and then for a PPP loan once the new member’s business account has been established .
Please call your local branch to open a new business account.
The process can be completed remotely for existing AmFirst members. New members may sign the required documents by using the drive-thru or making a branch appointment.
You can learn more about the Paycheck Protection Program at the United States Treasury website HERE.
