Small Business Grant Program Opens Next Week

COVID-19 has been hard on our business community, and I want to make sure everyone is aware of state resources as we begin the road to recovery. If you’re a small business who has been impacted by COVID-19, I encourage you to apply for a grant under Wisconsin’s “We’re All In” program.

Businesses who are interested can apply starting Monday, June 15th through Sunday, June 21st. Grants of up to $2,500 will be awarded to 30,000 small businesses throughout Wisconsin. To be eligible, you must:

  • Be a Wisconsin-based, for-profit business.
  • Employ 20 or fewer full-time employees, including the owner.
  • Earn greater than $0 but less than $1 million in annual revenues (gross sales and receipts).
  • Have started operating prior to January 1, 2020 and have been in business in February 2020.

 

These grants are not first come first serve as they were with the Small Business Administration, but you must apply within the one-week window. Please check out the WEDC website for further information - https://wedc.org/programs-and-resources/wai-small-business-grant/

As always, if you have any questions or need assistance, please reach out to my office via email at rep.meyers@legis.wisconsin.gov or call at (608) 266-7690.
