About the Grants for Small Businesses and Non-Profit Organizations

DEADLINE: Applications Due on Monday, June 15 at 11:30 p.m.
Applications must be received by Friday, June 15 at 11:30 p.m.
Applicants must use this online form.
Applications must be completed in full, including an uploaded W-9. This is a requirement for disbursement of funds from the EDA. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Awardees will be chosen at random after eligibility is confirmed.
The grant application is a public document and the names of the businesses awarded funds may be made public once funds are disbursed.
Grant recipients will receive their check by mail.
Tips for Completing the Application
There are two questions you may want to write ahead of time and copy-and-paste into the application:
(1) Why your primary business or non-profit needs the grant (such as sales down by a certain percent, required closure, etc.)
(2) For what purpose(s) the grant will be used (such as rent, salary, etc.).
(3) The positive impact you believe this grant will have on your primary business or non-profit.
Please describe the plan to reopen the primary business or non-profit and areas where additional assistance from the City or other agencies may be needed to assist in reopening.
You cannot save your answers and return at a later time.
Businesses and non-profits will need to upload a W-9 with this application. A blank W-9 form is available from the IRS here, and instructions are here. Each business must have a completed, signed, electronic W-9 in order to submit the application. Please save the W-9 as a PDF with your business or non-profit name (example: bobsburgers.pdf for the business named Bob’s Burgers; avoid special characters or spaces in a file name. Use capitals and underscores instead of periods or spaces or slashes).
Non-profits chosen for a grant will be required to provide a current copy of their IRS Letter of Determination.
