The Government of Saskatchewan has announced the Strong Recovery Adaptation Rebate (SRAR), which will assist companies who have adapted their businesses to address COVID-19 challenges, such as changing the use of square footage of their stores, installing physical infrastructures to comply with COVID-19 mitigation guidelines, and upgrading technology such as websites.
The program is for Saskatchewan businesses that employ less than 100 people, have, or will incur expenses to adapt their business between April 1, 2020, and February 28, 2021, plan to continue operating, and have experienced at least a 30% revenue decline compared to 2019. Eligible applicants will receive a rebate of 50%, up to a maximum of $5,000 for a $10,000 expenditure.
The SRAR program will be launched and applications will be available in the coming weeks. More information will be available on the Government of Saskatchewan website.
