Why are home-based businesses not eligible to apply?

To maximize the impact of the limited funds available, at this time the Business Recovery Program grant is only open to businesses that were   required to close or reduce operations under the Governor’s and County Public Health Department orders. Home-based business owners perform activities from their own homes and therefore are not heavily dependent on in-person services or transactions nor do they have to pay rent, utility, wages, and other related expenses associated with maintaining a physical storefront and having a workforce.
