The North Dakota Department of Commerce has a new grant opportunity for North Dakota businesses that make improvements to their facilities aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19. Developed to improve customer confidence in the marketplace, the Economic Resiliency Grant will award up to $50,000 per eligible business and up to $100,000 for those with multiple locations.
Eligible expenses must be direct investments to reduce the spread of infection, such as improvements that create a distance between customers and employees. This means that grant funds can be used for ArmorBoss™ protective shields and sneeze guards from PS Public Protection™. Available in wide-variety of configurations, these shields allow for safe, face-to-face communication at counters, reception areas, desks and even standing work spaces.
The deadline to apply for the Economic Resiliency Grant is August 28, 2020. Documentation (such as receipts and quotes) to support all expenditures must be included within the required submission materials. All funds received from the program must be spent within 45 days.
If you have already purchased ArmorBoss Shields on or after March 27, 2020, receipts from the transaction can be submitted to receive reimbursement.
North Dakota businesses seeking a quote for ArmorBoss protective shields for their facility are encouraged to contact PS Public Protection at 877-446-1519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
