COVID 19 - Small and Medium-Sized Business Recovery Grant program update 


 

PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT UPDATE

*Grant program now accessible to more BC businesses*

The BC government has enhanced the Small and Medium-Sized Business Recovery Grant program to include a streamlined application process and simplified criteria. It also has increased support for those in the hard-hit tourism sector. The program is part of StrongerBC: BC’s Economic Recovery Plan.

The criteria has been expanded in the following ways:

from a minimum revenue drop of 50% to a drop of 30%.
the previous three-year operation requirement has been reduced to 18 months. 
businesses impacted by the pandemic will be eligible to receive a grant up to $30,000.
the grant for the tourism sector has been increased, meaning those hardest-hit businesses in the tourism sector will be eligible for a grant up to $45,000.

The revised application process and eligibility criteria are now in place. 

Small- and medium-sized businesses are encouraged to apply online via the Government of BC website

If you have any questions about the grant, would like assistance to apply or a letter of support please contact Patti, Executive Director, Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce at manager@aschamber.com
