What is the We’re All In Small Business Grant Phase 2 program?
The We’re All In Small Business Grant Phase 2 program is designed to help small businesses get back on their feet as they re-emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, while also encouraging adoption of best practices to keep employees, customers, and communities safe.
Funded by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the We’re All In Small Business Grant Phase 2 program will provide grants to Wisconsin small businesses to assist with the costs of business interruption or for health and safety improvements, wages and salaries, rent, mortgages, and inventory.
Phase 1 of the program was designed, marketed and administered by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). Applications are no longer accepted for Phase 1. The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) is administering Phase 2 of the program and WEDC is focused on marketing the program.
What does it mean to be a We’re All In business?
The program aims to help Wisconsin’s small businesses get back on their feet while also encouraging adoption of best practices to build confidence in reopening Wisconsin’s economy. Grant recipients become We’re All In businesses by pledging to observe health safety best practices in their facilities to protect employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate. Industry-specific safety guidelines can be found at wedc.org/reopen-guidelines. WEDC and DOR are encouraging all businesses, large and small, to adopt behaviors that maximize safety and balance health and livelihoods. We’re all in this together to be healthy and safe.
