Developed to help local businesses across the state overcome the economic challenges of COVID-19, the Oklahoma Business Relief Program (OBRP) offers vital funding for qualifying businesses that have suffered revenue loss due to the pandemic. Governor Kevin Stitt has designated $50 million in Federal CARES Act funds for the program.
Starting June 29, Oklahoma businesses can request to apply for OBRP through participating financial institutions, like FNB Community Bank. FNB will evaluate applications based on the program rules and make a preliminary determination of business eligibility.
Applications and supporting documents will be submitted by the financial institution to the Oklahoma Department of Commerce for a final determination of eligibility. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and funds will be provided to the business through the financial institution; however, at least twenty-percent of the program funds will be designated for minority owned businesses.
Please see Program Rules for full details.
- Maximum of $25,000 per grant
- Grant amount equal to two months of average total payroll based on either:
- Average of 2019 total payroll; or,
- Average of January-February 2020 total payroll
- This is a grant program and not a business loan.
In general, grant funds may be used for business expenses for which the business has not or will not receive reimbursement from another source such as other federal, state or city grants or insurance proceeds.
Please see program rules for details as to eligible and ineligible expenses and businesses.
