In May, the Wyoming Legislature created three grant programs to aid small business owners suffering from the consequences of public health orders invoked to combat the novel coronavirus.

The first of these programs, the Business Interruption Stipend Program, provides grants up to $50,000 for businesses with 50 or fewer employees. For more information about eligibility requirements, FAQs, and how to apply, visit wyobizrelief.org

The other two programs are expected to launch in early July. Be sure to sign up for our news releases at tinyurl.com/wbcpress to stay updated.
