June 26 – Grants for Self Employed

Self-employed firms can soon seek COVID-19 grants

5ef514c598258.imageCONCORD — Starting after the Fourth of July holiday weekend, self-employed Granite Staters will be able to apply for grants of up to $50,000 to cover losses from COVID-19, Gov. Chris Sununu announced Thursday.

The state has not identified how much these workers will receive, but Sununu said the Main Street Relief Fund did not spend $62 million of its $400 million allotment.

When the Main Street program received more than 5,000 applications from companies who weren’t eligible for grants, Sununu said he decided a separate program was appropriate.

“This is a need we have identified through the process, and it’s important to see that these so-called mom and pop businesses can get some help,” Sununu said. Read more at Union Leader
