Round 2 Applications
Applications for round two of the Edmond Small Business Microgrant Program will be accepted from Wednesday, August 26 to Wednesday, September 9.
The program is designed to offer a lifeline to local small businesses, which will result in greater continuity of operations and will sustain viability through the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will provide a local grant benefit to businesses to bridge their limited cash reserves as they proactively take steps to amass financing and capital from other sources.
To be eligible, applicants must be a for-profit corporation or business registered with the Oklahoma Secretary of State; have a physical brick and mortar location in the city limits of Edmond, OK, with the majority of revenue normally coming from in-person transactions; have been established before January 1, 2020; and have fewer than 50 full-time equivalent employees. Priority will be given to minority applicants. Online businesses are not eligible. This program is administered by the Edmond Economic Development Authority.
