North Dakota Economic Resiliency Grant

On June 25,  a $66.4 million grant was approved during the North Dakota State Legislature's Budget Section hearing called the Economic Resiliency Grant (ERG). The grant will allow businesses to purchase touchless payment systems, partitions between workers who cannot be socially distanced, and temperature checking equipment, such as thermal imaging cameras.

Who Qualifies?

The North Dakota Department of Commerce (NDDoC) is looking to help businesses that rely on customer traffic, and offices that don't will usually not qualify for the grant.

Businesses that are licensed to do business in North Dakota, either by the Secretary of State or a tribal licensing authority, may qualify to receive up to $50,000 in grant funding. For privately-owned companies with more than one physical location, the grant is capped at $100,000.

Overall, the improvements must show that the business is working to decrease the spread of infection.

When does it start?

The NDDoC is aiming to begin accepting applications on July 31. The processing of applications is on a first-come, first-served basis.
