If your business is selected as a
finalist, you will be notified via email. Being selected as a finalist does not
guarantee a grant will be awarded. As a finalist, additional documentation will
be required, including date of birth, SSN, TIN/ITIN and/or EIN for the applicant and/or the
business in order for us to perform the due diligence required by the program’s
funding source. This due diligence inquiry may include
a background search that we will conduct at our expense. If the due diligence
step is successfully completed, we will ask for W-9 and appropriate banking
information so that we may transfer funds by ACH to your designated account.
The following questions ask about the number of employees at all locations operated by the applicant. For this section, full-time workers are those who work 35
hours/week or more; part-time workers are those who work less than 35
The next portion of the survey requests socioeconomic data
related to the lead business owner and it is optional; if you wish not to provide socio-demographic information, please select 'Prefer not to say'. Please provide
information based on how the lead business owner self-identifies.
