Small Business Grant Relief Program Information

Starting June 10, small businesses can apply for up to $50,000 in grants.

More than 330,000 small businesses in our state are eligible for funds from New York’s $800 million small business recovery program. This crucial aid can help business owners finance operating expenses incurred during the pandemic, including payroll, rent or mortgage payments, taxes and utilities.

Small business grants start at $5,000, capped at $50,000 and must be used for pandemic-related expenses.

For eligibility and use requirements, and to learn more about the application process, visit the state’s Pandemic Small Business Recovery Grant Program website at

I strongly encourage all our eligible small business owners to take advantage of this important funding initiative.
