Take it Outside Grant Program


Attention Smithfield Businesses!

Take It Outside

Grant Opportunity

The Town of Smithfield has secured $100,000 in funding from the RI Commerce Corporation to further Smithfield’s small business community’s “Take It Outside” initiative. The funds will be used to cover the cost of producing outdoor activities as autumn and winter weather arrives in New England. The funding is focused on the purchase of items such as heat lamps, tents, tables, etc.
The “Take It Outside” initiative was created to encourage and increase outdoor commerce and reduce the transmission rate of COVID-19. This is the Town’s third round of grant funding to support small businesses with outdoor activities. 
Smithfield Small businesses who wish to apply for outdoor equipment may do so starting Monday, August 29th, 2022 until all the funds are spent. Grants will be issued prior to the closeout date to eligible applicants. Do not delay in submitting your grant request. The Town will make every effort to fill eligible applicants’ requests; however, funding is limited to the award amount.

  • experiencing a supply chain delay or disruption that negatively impacted operations;
  • experiencing increased cost as a result of the pandemic; and/or
  • being forced to lay off workers as a result of the pandemic
  • The applicant has not received funding from any other source for the goods and/or services for which it seeks support that does not need to be repaid (i.e. other grant funding, gifts, insurance payments, etc.); and
