This morning, Governor Noem announced changes to the Small Business Grants which utilize Coronavirus Relief Fund dollars to assist small businesses and start-up businesses, and small non-profit businesses. The updates will help even more businesses and include:

  • Increasing the maximum grant from $100,000 to $500,000
  • Decreasing the minimum threshold from $750 to $500
  • Broadening the eligibility requirement from reduction in business of more than 25% to a reduction in business of more than 15%

Additionally, the application deadline will be extended by one week, so the new deadline for applications will be October 30.
