Opportunities NB is launching a financial support program that offers non-repayable grants to self-employed business people who have had to close due to restrictions put in place to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Businesses eligible for the Self-Employed Lockdown Fund include those who do not have employees but were ordered to close under the COVID-19 Winter Plan. Funding will take the form of a one-time grant of $2,000.

Applications can be made online through the Opportunities NB website beginning Feb. 1. More information, including application requirements, is available by contacting Opportunities NB’s Business Navigators by email at [email protected] or phone at 1-833-799-7966.

Eligible businesses should expect payment within 10 business days following receipt of a complete application. You can find a full list of the eligibility requirements in the press release linked below.
