The State of Nebraska is reopening the Small Business Stabilization Grant Program with expanded eligibility. Businesses who have 1 to 75 employees, lost revenue due to COVID-19, and withhold state income tax for employees are now eligible. This means the self employed are eligible.
You must act fast as the deadline is this Friday, July 17, at 4 p.m., and funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The application is not difficult to complete.
Potential grant applicants must certify their eligibility by clicking here. If deemed eligible, applicants will be notified via email and sent a confirmation number and link to complete a full application. Please note that the application material still says 5 to 49 employees in some places.
For questions or technical difficulties, contact the Get Nebraska Growing hotline at 855.264.6858.
