6. What is difference between the options available?

Option A allows applicants to apply for grant funds by calculating 25% of lost revenue when comparing the period January 1 to October 31, 2020 to the period January 1 to October 31, 2019.

Option B allows for applicants to apply for grant funds based upon specific expenses incurred from March 1, 2020 through the date of the application submission related to the COVID-19 public health crisis. 

Nonprofits must specify at time of application whether the application is under Option A or Option B.  Nonprofits can use both Options, but the maximum award over all Options and Rounds is $25,000. 

Nonprofits that experienced an increase in revenue during the specified period and new nonprofits must apply using Option B.
