Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a business license to be eligible to apply?

No. The first version of the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) included an error, listing a business license as one of the eligibility criteria to apply. An updated NOFA was released on August 5, 2022 which strikes the business license requirement. The NOFA featured on the webpage is the updated version.
