Starting on 7/14/2020, Missouri small businesses can apply for emergency grants of up to $50,000 through a new $30 million program via the Missouri Department of Economic Development.
The Small Business Grant Program offers grants for for-profit businesses with fewer than 50 employees as well as family owned farms. The Department is focused on impacting the hardest hit industries, which include retail trade, accommodation and food service and health care, in addition to family-owned farms. However, the grant is not limited to these industries.
