As of May 31, 2021, application intake closed for the Business Association stream. All organizations that were interested in this grant are encouraged to review the details of the EAP Grant to see how they can qualify for funding through this phase. However, the Individual Business grant stream is still accepting applications. Through this stream, businesses can obtain $1,000 microgrants to address the immediate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
