Assemblyman Joe Angelino (R,C,I-Norwich) is encouraging residents who work in the agriculture industry to apply for small business grants of up to $50,000. There is $800 million worth of funds that small agribusiness owners can tap into. Businesses with revenues of up to $2.5 million and experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 may apply.

“Our agribusinesses in the district and statewide have taken a substantial hit since the start of the pandemic. I encourage all within the industry to apply for these grants, this money is allocated for our farmers, growers and producers. This much-needed relief can help many recover from financial losses and rebuild their businesses. Agriculture is the backbone of our state’s economy and it is time we put some money back in the pockets of these hard-working men and women,” said Angelino.
