NYS COVID-19 Grant

Empire State Development is happy to announce the New York State COVID-19 Pandemic Small Business Recovery Grant Program is NOW OPEN. This program was created to provide flexible grant assistance to currently viable small businesses, micro-businesses, and for-profit independent arts and cultural organizations in the State of New York that have experienced economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NY & NJ Minority Supplier Development Council is now providing additional technical support services to assist small businesses with grant applications, as well as getting your business back on track as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

NYS grant awards will be calculated based on a business’ annual 2019 gross receipts and are capped as follows:

  • Annual gross receipts = $25,000-$49,999: $5,000/business
  • Annual gross receipts = $50,000-$99,999: $10,000/business
  • Annual gross receipts = $100,000-$500,000: 10% of gross receipts (max grant is $50,000)
