In response to the growing economic crisis, small businesses, including agricultural businesses, and non-profit organizations can apply for an Global Development Initiative Grant (GDIG). This program is designed to provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. GDIG proceeds can be used to cover a wide array of working capital and normal operating expenses, such as continuation to health care benefits, rent, utilities, and fixed debt payments.

We are working around the clock to process applications, and we ask for your patience. Applications are taking approximately 3 -5 days to process. Please know that you are our primary concern, and we will respond to applications as quickly as we can. Thank you for your understanding and please be safe.

Financial assistance is available for businesses and non-profit organizations that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. We ask that if you have the resources to cover these expenses, please wait to apply. These are unprecedented times and we all must steward our resources very carefully.
