Funded by the federal CARES Act and administered by WEDC, the Wisconsin We’re All In grant program will help small businesses with the costs of business interruption or for health and safety improvements, wages and salaries, rent, mortgages and inventory. The program will provide $2,500 grants to 30,000 small businesses to help them get back on their feet amid the COVID-19 pandemic while also encouraging them to adopt best practices to keep employees, customers and communities safe. Note the new application deadline has been extended to June 23; previously it was June 21.
To be eligible, a business must be located in WI, have been in operation before 2020, have 20 or fewer full time employees, and make more than $0 but less than $1 million in annual revenues. Businesses that are part of a national chain are ineligible unless they’re a third-party franchise.
