Self-employed in Idaho now eligible for state coronavirus-related assistance

Self-employed Idaho residents can now apply for a portion of the $300 million worth of financial help from the state.

Under Gov. Brad Little’s Idaho Rebounds program, self-employed residents can apply for a grant that will be administered by the Idaho State Tax Commission on a first-come, first-serve basis. The eligibility started on Wednesday.

The grants can go to self-employed residents who have received less than $7,500 from federal pandemic-related loans or have received no federal assistance.

Self-employed residents can apply immediately, and the grants will expire on July 17 or when the $300 million runs out, whichever comes first, Suzanne Budge, Idaho state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, said in a news release.
