Welcome to the city of Las Vegas Business Preparedness Grant Program
A new Business Preparedness Grant has been created by the city of Las Vegas using $4 million in CARES Act funds. To be eligible a business must have an active city of Las Vegas business license, between three to 25 full-time equivalent employees and be committed to upholding all of the recommendations and/or comply with any mandates for reopening from the state of Nevada and the Southern Nevada Health District. Attempts will be made, so that 50 percent of approved applications are located within distressed census tracts and otherwise underserved areas.
Grants will be a maximum of $4,000 and will need to go to fund expenses associated with personal protective equipment, facility retrofit for health and safety measures or other expenses reasonably needed to prepare the business for reopening or expanded reopening. This grant is not intended to duplicate the Payroll Protection Program and therefore may not be used for payroll, rent, utilities or such expenses.
A required criteria is that your business address is within the city of Las Vegas jurisdiction. If you are unsure, please check before applying. Verify your business is within city limits
In order to proceed with the application, you will need to know your city of Las Vegas business license number. If you need to search for it, use our license search tool.
State licensed schools and childcare centers/facilities who are located within the city limits and who are exempt from a city license should email BAPG@lasvegasnevada.gov for further instructions.
