New Emergency Support Grant from GOED

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) is announcing the Pandemic Emergency Technical Support (PETS) Grant Program which makes $19 million in Coronavirus Relief Funds available to provide operational support to small businesses, non-profits organizations, arts and culture organizations, and local Chambers of Commerce impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Program is intended to be flexible and ensure that eligible businesses, non-profits and other entities can adequately respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, safely reopen and continue their operations. Arts and culture organizations are being prioritized within the funding groups, so the Nevada Arts Council is partnering with GOED to disseminate this grant information to all eligible arts and culture organizations.
