The South Carolina Department of Administration (Admin) announces two new SC CARES  Act grant programs — the Minority and Small Business Relief Grant Program and the Nonprofit Relief Grant Program. These programs will award grant funds to small and minority businesses and nonprofit organizations to reimburse qualifying expenditures for providing services or for revenue loss due to COVID 19. Admin, working with Guidehouse, a professional grant management services provider, has been  authorized to provide these grants from the Coronavirus Relief Fund pursuant to Act 154 of 2020.

Grant awards for the Minority and Small Business Grant Program will range from $2,500 to $25,000. To qualify for a grant from the Minority and Small Business Grant Program, a business must employ 25 or fewer  employees, be physically located in South Carolina, be in operation from Oct. 13, 2019, to present, and have  experienced a business impact due to COVID-19. 

Grant awards for the Nonprofit Relief Grant Program will range from $2,500 to $50,000.
