Support for Small Business: COVID-19 Closure Relief Grant

To help stop the spread of Omicron & protect our health care system, some businesses have been ordered to close. The COVID-19 Closure Relief Grant of up to $10,000 will soon be available to support businesses through this difficult time.

The COVID-19 Closure Relief Grant will provide fully funded grants to businesses that had to close due to the December 22, 2021 Provincial Health Officer (PHO) orders.

Grants are fully funded and do not have to be paid back unless the business is not following health orders or the funds are misused. You can use the grant for expenses like:

  • Cost of perishable food loss
  • Employee wages
  • Insurance
  • Maintenance
  • Rent and utilities

The funding amount for each business is based how many B.C. employees or contracted staff they have.
