Applications for up to $420 million in new Wisconsin Tomorrow Small Business Recovery Grants for small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic are open through 4:30 pm. Monday, June 7, Governor Tony Evers announced today.
The Wisconsin Tomorrow Small Business Recovery Grants program is a collaboration between the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and the Department of Revenue (DOR) and funded by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).
The grants will provide as many as 84,000 Wisconsin small businesses with annual gross revenue between $10,000 and $7 million with a flat award of $5,000.
“These new grants are intended to support those small businesses who were hardest hit by the pandemic and who are now poised to make a strong recovery with just a little extra help,” said WEDC Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes said.
The new grants will target Wisconsin small businesses, including those that started in 2020, in sectors that have been hit hardest by the pandemic.
