If you are a targeted small business and are experiencing a business disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to look into applying for a grant of up to $10,000 with Iowa Economic Development: https://www.iowaeconomicdevelopment.com/programDetails?pid=137&ppid=26
Businesses with no employees and that are considered a “targeted small business” are eligible to apply. To be eligible for TSB Certification and the grant, businesses must be majority owned (51% or more), operated and managed by a female, individual with minority status, service disabled veteran or individual with a disability.
Be sure to read through the FAQ to help you complete the application. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to the team at BakerStarrett for assistance in filling out your application: https://www.iowaeconomicdevelopment.com/userdocs/programs/2020tsbsoleoperatorgrantfaq.pdf
