Angelino Encourages Small Businesses To Apply For Covid Recovery Grant Program

Assemblyman Joseph Angelino (R,C,I-Norwich) is urging small businesses to apply for the COVID Small Business Recovery Grant Program. The program has $200 million left out of the overall $800 million allocation.

“So many of our small businesses are still in recovery mode from the pandemic. I want to be sure that small-business owners are aware of every tool and program available to them,” said Angelino. “The COVID Recovery Grant Program still has $200 million left to distribute with an update to eligibility. I encourage businesses to take a look again at the program to see if it is a good fit for them.”

There also has been an update to eligibility: a positive net profit on the 2019 Business Return of $1 or more will no longer be considered. Full details about eligibility and where to apply may be found at

Existing applicants will be reexamined and contacted by Lendistry, the program administrator. These existing applicants do not need to re-apply.
