Small Business Economic Relief Program

In response to the unprecedented COVID-19 public health emergency, the City of Superior has developed a grant program to assist small businesses located in the City of Superior, Wisconsin.  Please review the program description to determine if your business is eligible prior to applying.  It is very important that all required application attachments are included at the time of submission, so as not to delay review of your application.  This program is available to business owners until the allotted funding source is depleted or until December 31, 2020, whichever comes first.  

**This program was amended and approved by the Common Council on May 19th, 2020.  The qualifications for businesses was broadened to allow for more eligibility. If a business has already received funding through this program they are not eligible to apply again.**

Qualifying Businesses

  • For-profit businesses only
  • Must have 25 employees or less
