The MPP for Perth-Wellington is encouraging struggling local businesses to apply for the province’s new Small Business Support Grant.

Randy Pettapiece says small businesses are “critical to every community in Perth-Wellington” and adds his government is “absolutely determined to keep them afloat in this incredibly challenging time.”

Applications for the grant are now open for businesses affected by the province wide shutdown.

Businesses with fewer than 100 employees may be eligible for the one-time grant of $10,000 to $20,000.
