LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Grants for small businesses struggling to survive during the coronavirus pandemic will soon be available.
The "Save Small Business" program was established by a private group, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, to give $5,000 to any small business that employs three to 20 people, operates in an economically vulnerable community as defined by the Distressed Communities Index, and has been impacted by the COVID-19 global pandemic.
This grant comes as the Small Business Administration continues to deny loan applications through the Paycheck Protection Program.
According to the Save Small Business website, the application process takes roughly 10 minutes to complete, and the only thing business owners need to apply is information from their W-9 form.
The grants will become available beginning at noon Monday at savesmallbusiness.com.
