Revenue Loss Criteria and Award Amounts
We calculate revenue loss for the Event Service Industry Revitalization Grant by comparing any consecutive three months in 2019 to the same three-month period in 2021 or 2022.
Tranche A: $1,750,000
- Businesses with 2019 annual revenue less than $350,000
- Award 15% of 2019 revenue up to $52,500
Tranche B: $1,750,000
- Businesses with 2019 annual revenue between $350,000 and $1,000,000
- Award 15% of 2019 revenue up to $150,000
Tranche C: $1,000,000
- Businesses with 2019 annual revenue greater than $1,000,000
- Award 15% of 2019 revenue up to $200,000
The grant program prioritizes each tranche to applicants with the highest percentage of revenue loss.
Funds may be moved from one tranche to another if the applications do not exhaust the total amount identified. The grant program will prioritize small businesses in Tranche A.
The application portal for the grant will open on June 14, 2022, at 9 a.m. and close on June 16, 2022, at 5 p.m. (MDT). Recipients should be notified beginning on July 7, 2022, and recipients should receive checks within a week of notification.
