Small Business Grant Opportunity

Update December 6, 2022

The Small Business Grant is closed for 2022. There are (2) grant cycles in 2023 - applications are due April 1st and August 1st and should be submitted to edevelopment@wycokck.org.

The UG Small Business Grant is available for qualified applicants that own an existing small business with twenty-five (25) or fewer employees that are primed for expansion and moving to the next level in business/job growth.

The strategy is to promote small business activity through a one-time reimbursable grant to applicants.

The UG will provide grants of $1,000 to $10,000 to applicants. Award amounts will be based on need and the qualified matching investment.

Types of grants for qualified applicants that own an existing small business that is primed for expansion and moving to the next level in business and job growth:

  • Renovation costs (sheetrock, flooring, painting, etc.)
  • Facade and minor roof repairs (painting, sealing, etc.)
  • Inventory costs (other than office supplies)
  • Equipment cost
