America’s SBDC New York: NY COVID Funding Program Updates


Deadline (End Date)

September 16, 2022


Governor Kathy Hochul announced that the applications portal for the first-in-the-nation Seed Funding Grant Program, created as part of the FY2023 budget, will open on September 14. The program provides flexible grants to support early stage, micro and small businesses in a still recovering New York State economy. The program will ensure that small businesses that opened shortly before or during the COVID-19 pandemic will have the funds to continue to operate and grow. Additionally, Empire State Development is removing the requirement that businesses show a twenty-five percent loss in annual gross receipts from 2019 to 2020 for the NY Pandemic Recovery Grant Program.

Join us for a webinar on Friday, September 16th at 12:00pm for information on the new grant program and updates to the existing ones.
