|Businesses||The current pandemic and necessary resulting public safety measures have taken a toll on businesses of many kinds in the State of Vermont, including Sole Proprietors. In order to provide some relief to the economic pain that Sole Proprietors have had to endure, the launch of an economic relief grant program has been announced which will provide grants of $5,000, $7,500 or $10,000 to qualifying Sole Proprietors through a Lottery draw. The program is funded through $1.5 million from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development’s CDBG Program, and passed through the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD). The application window will open Monday, July 20, 2020 and grants will be awarded through a lottery system on August 14, 2020.
Among eligibility criteria businesses must:
Be a Sole Proprietor, do not issue W-2s to any employees.
Be a for-profit entity.
Have a physical establishment (mailing address only is not sufficient) in the Vermont city/town of application.
Provide goods or services to multiple clients or customers.
Have annual gross revenues greater than $25,000.
Have been legally established prior to or as of January 1, 2020.
