Small businesses urged to act quickly on aid

Small businesses on the peninsula looking for recovery aid are eligible to explore another avenue but will have to act quickly. Applications are being accepted through June 7th for the Wisconsin Tomorrow Small Business grants. Made possible due to federal funds from the American Rescue Plan Act, the grants allot $420 million to approximately 84,000 Wisconsin small businesses. 


According to the Department of Revenue, the program is open for all businesses that were open prior to 2021 and have annual revenue between $10,000 and $7 million. Seasonal businesses are also eligible to apply. The Door County Economic Development Corporation says every eligible business will receive a $5,000 grant to go towards rent, renovations, hiring staff, or other means to help them get on their feet. The DCEDC and Director of Business Development Julie Schmelzer emphasized through a press release for businesses to apply quickly. More information on eligibility and how to apply can be found on the Department of Revenue website
