The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) will be offering financial support to small businesses through the Connecticut CARES Small Business Grant Program.  Here is the link to the application, which just went live tonight.

One-time grants of up to $5,000 are available for businesses that meet the following criteria:
 
  • 20 or fewer employees; or 
  • No more than $1.5 million in annualized payroll expenses 
These businesses must also demonstrate  a loss in revenue of 20% or more between
