The Nova Scotian government announced a one-time grant of $2,500 to small businesses today to help offset the cost of unanticipated business closures due to Hurricane Fiona.
To qualify for the grant, small businesses must have ceased operations due to impacts of the storm for at least five days between Friday, Sept. 23, and Friday, Oct. 7.
"As small businesses work to recover in the aftermath of hurricane Fiona, we know this help can't come soon enough," said Premier Houston in a news release.
"We will continue to work with the business community to understand the ongoing impacts on their operations, and we will be there to support them."
The province says more details about the grant and how to apply will soon be available.
