Apply now: One-time grants for small businesses

Many Nova Scotia businesses are affected by the restrictions resulting from the spread of the Omicron variant. Some of them are getting some help —finally— from the provincial government.

Businesses impacted by the latest public health restrictions in Nova Scotia can now apply for support through the Sector Impact Support Program.

The Sector Impact Support Program will provide a one-time grant to help small business owners in industries such as restaurants, bars, gyms, live performing arts facilities and recreation facilities. Eligible businesses can receive a grant of $2,500, $5,000 or $7,500 based on gross payroll cost or gross revenue in November 2021.

My colleagues and I are working to ensure impacted businesses left out of this latest program are included. If you apply and are turned down, please reach out to my office and we will advocate on your behalf.
