As the COVID-19 crisis continues, small businesses and nonprofits throughout our state are facing significant financial challenges as they operate under the new normal. But assistance is on the way.

To help these businesses recover, Governor John Carney, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer, and the Delaware Division of Small Business have launched the DE Relief Grants program. This program will provide at least $100 million in grants to assist Delaware small businesses and nonprofit organizations affected by COVID-19.

The Division of Small Business is administering the program. Due to significant demand, the Delaware Relief Grant application portal has closed for this round. The second application round will open at Delaware.gov/relief no later than October 1, 2020 with another $30 million available. Sign up for the DSB email list for updates.
