The SREDA Small Business Emergency Continuity Grant Program provides grants of up to $5,000 to small businesses located in the Saskatoon Region that are experiencing significant financial challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications are now closed.
Thank you to everyone who applied for the SREDA Small Business Emergency Continuity Grant Program. All approved applicants have been notified. While SREDA cares deeply about the success of all businesses in the Saskatoon Region, our funding limited the number of grant applications we were able to approve. We appreciate your understanding of this limitation during these exceptional circumstances.
All applications were screened and evaluated by the SREDA team, and reviewed by an independent Grant Review Committee, followed by an approval by the SREDA Board of Directors. To support the review process, a weighted scoring matrix was used. Preference was given to businesses that, in the opinion of the review team, are more likely to withstand the COVID-19 pandemic and add value to the local economy in the future (e.g business continuity). Grant recipients also represented a range of industries and locations in the Saskatoon Region.
