MADISON – Today, Governor Evers and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) unveiled a Rapid Execution Small Business Grant Program utilizing funding from the federal CARES Act. As small businesses across Wisconsin work to keep their employees and customers safe, WEDC will provide Wisconsin small businesses with cash grants to assist with the costs of business interruption or for health and safety improvements, wages and salaries, rent, mortgages, and inventory. Rep. Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement in support:
“Wisconsin’s small businesses are at the center of our community, and their owners and employees are part of why Racine is such a strong, vibrant community. But with COVID-19, our lives and our business have been upended. To get through this crisis, we need to ensure that businesses have the resources they need to survive — that’s why I’m excited to support Gov. Evers’ “We’re All In” Initiative at WEDC.
“We’re All In” will award $2,500 grants to eligible businesses to help get them through this unprecedented crisis and help jump start our economy. Small businesses help keep our communities strong, and we’re committed to finding solutions to support them.”
