Frequently Asked Questions

I applied in the first round. Can I apply again, or will my application roll over?
If you applied for the first round of the grant program and did not receive funding, we invite you to re-apply if you still meet all eligibility criteria. Please use these instructions to access your previously submitted application in preparation for re-submitting for round 2. You will need to re-submit an application for round 2, though you should be able to use most of the same information from your first application. 
First round grant awardees are not eligible for the second round of the grant program, even if you apply for a different business.
