The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is extending the deadline until midnight Friday for small businesses to apply online for the $2,500, "We’re All In" grants.

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has received more than 26,000 applications as of Tuesday night, when applications were originally scheduled to close. The deadline was extended to give additional businesses more time to get needed documents and submit their information to WEDC.

The program will provide $2,500 grants to 30,000 small businesses and is designed to help small businesses recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, while also encouraging them to adopt best practices to keep employees, customers and communities safe.

WEDC Secretary Missy Hughes said businesses all have the same chance of receiving a grant, regardless of when they apply.
