For small businesses located in New York and New Jersey, there are still some pandemic funds available under certain conditions. If your business is eligible, these funds – if awarded to you – may go a long way to getting your business through rough times.

New York

New York State COVID-19 Pandemic Small Business Recovery Grant Program

Awards range from $5,000 – $50,000.

Eligible businesses include small businesses, micro-businesses, and for-profit independent arts and cultural organizations (collectively, “Eligible Applicants”) and must be currently viable and have begun operation on or before March 1, 2019 and continue to be in operation as of the date of application.

Eligible applicants will be required to show loss of gross receipts as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic or compliance with COVID-19 health and safety protocols which resulted in business modifications, interruptions, or closures.
