Governor Asa Hutchinson announced today a new grant program to help Arkansas businesses as they prepare to transition back towards normal operating capacity. The program, open to all industry sectors, is designed to provide grants from $1,000 to $100,000 to assist with COVID-19 related expenses such as PPE equipment, cleaning supplies, and the one-time expenses to assist in resuming normal operations. Through the State’s reopening plan, the Governor mandates many protections including increased cleanings, masks, and social distancing. All businesses are encouraged to apply to cover some of these costs.

Applications go live TODAY, April 29th, at 5:00pm. Apply here. Read the overview and guidelines here.
