Today is the deadline for small local businesses to apply for the $1,000 funding.
To date, 3,327 local businesses have already qualified to receive this support coming from the Red Cross.
To get this funding you must call the Wood Buffalo Business Recovery Hotline at 1-855-769-2249 by 3 p.m.
To be eligible your business must be registered on the hotline, have an active RMWB license while also being stationed here in the region and must employ less than 50 workers.
Once the business is qualified and registered, instructions will be sent on how to obtain the $1,000 dollars.
Applications for the new additional funding of up to $20,000 coming from Government of Alberta and the $15 million being allocated from the RMWB for wages and labour assistance will be available for qualified businesses in September.
