Town Officials:
 
I wanted to make you aware of an opportunity for you to assist in connecting your local businesses to an exciting grant opportunity that opens up on Monday, June 15th. The application period runs through Tuesday, June 23rd (9 days).
 
The “We’re All In” grant is for $2,500 and provided by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation for small businesses that:
 
  • are a Wisconsin-based, for-profit business;
  • employ 20 or fewer full-time equivalent (FTE) employees, including the owner; (Seasonal businesses should use the highest total FTEs employed during the season.);
  • earn greater than $0 but less than $1 million in annual revenues (gross sales and receipts); and
  • have started operating prior to Jan. 1, 2020, and have been in business as of Feb. 2020. (Seasonal businesses should use the highest total FTEs employed during the season.)
 
The use of the grant is very flexible.
 
As a local leader, you are in a unique position to help communicate this opportunity to the businesses in your community. Furthermore, the grant application requires a letter/email from a community organization acknowledging that the business was in operation in February, 2020. This letter/email can come from a town government. 
 
You can find more information on the We’re All In small business grant here.
