Businesses affected by the PAUSE can get a grant up to $50K

The application for the ‘Rhode Island on Pause’ Grant Program is now live on the Rhode Island Division of Taxation’s website in both English and Spanish.

Earlier this week, Rhode Island Governor Gina M. Raimondo announced the program, which will provide direct financial support to gyms, restaurants, fitness centers, event planners, bars, and a number of other businesses that are subject to new restrictions amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In coordination with the Governor’s announcement, the Division of Taxation launched a new webpage earlier this week, including frequently asked questions, to explain how the program works and provide businesses and their advisors with helpful information regarding applying for the grants. The webpage, including FAQs and the online application, is available via the following link: http://www.tax.ri.gov/RIonPause/.
