What if my business has been open for less than one year? Am I still eligible?

If your business has been open for less than one year and you feel like you can make a good case for loss of revenue or income due to Covid, we will still consider your application. However, please attach a description of your situation and the specific impact you have experienced. You can attach it with your Receipts for Reimbursement document in “Part D. Documentation” of the application.
