Apply for EIDL asap, you apply for the loan even if you wonít accept it in order to apply for the grants.

If you have 30/50% year-over-year losses for a single quarter, along with other qualifications, you could qualify for $10k targeted and $5k supplemental EIDL grants.

If you live in NYC thereís also the program in the OP, and the NYS grant that you qualify for.

Thank you for responding. I live in nyc the ny small business grant says need 25,000. Is there a different one, or should I apply anyway?

Yes, a Schedule C is required
So someone can apply and get approved with returns that the IRS didnít process yet? This is good news. Wish it was true for EIDL grants too.
so amending a 2019 to include a missing C that should have been filed at the time, should be doable and qualify?

The NYS requires 25k minimum. The NYC doesn't.

Yes, except that the IRS is way behind on processing amended returns so if they decide they need a 4506-T...
(and the grant rules can change but that's worrisome for everyone)

Where is the nyc link? is the nyc only in lower income areas?
If I didn't have a schedule c in 2020 would that be a problem?

So I apply for EIDL then I will get offer for 10k and 5k grant?
"If you live in NYC thereís also the program in the OP"  What's this?

See a few posts unlink. Yes, it's only in low-income areas, same as with the EIDL grant.

You have to certify that you're currently operational, so if you won't have one for 2021 either, that's problematic.

if in overall total I earned more sales in 2020 than in 2019, but just in the 2nd quarter I earned 25% less  - am I eligible for the NYS  grant?

DO I need to answer yes on the question "Will this grant create new jobs?"

Depends on the return type but usually line 1

@cgr
The application is still very messed up and I'm hopeful they'll fix it over the next few days (along with the FAQs) but based on a call I had the answer is yes.
My understanding was that when they ask for the annual 2019/2020 amounts on the application the quarterly should be inputted- same goes for the yes/no question about the reduction.

Just to confirm, also for the State program or just the city?

If it will the answer is yes. If it won't the answer is no.
If the answer is no will the application be denied?

My comment is in reference to the city application.
The State requires a YoY 25% reduction.
