We wanted to make you aware of another source of grant opportunities through the ARPA funding with the Department of Economic Development (DED).
The Department of Economic Development (DED) currently has a grant available for Missouri small businesses to help with revenue lost during COVID-19. For-profit businesses that were in operation prior to January 2020 with fewer than 50 full-time employees may be eligible for this funding. Prior participation in other COVID relief funding programs, like PPP, does not affect eligibility for this grant opportunity.
The funding is being awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. If eligible, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible, as the DED has stated that applications are coming in quickly. Please see the guidelines, frequently asked questions, and a link to access the online application below.
