So far, 150,000 businesses have received the grant money out of a planned 1 million recipients. The Minister of Trade and Investment, Doris Uzoka-Anite, confirmed this news.

The money is being given out in stages to make sure everything is done correctly.

Why are these grants being offered?

The grant program is part of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s plan to help businesses after the government stopped subsidizing fuel.

Fuel subsidies are when the government lowers the price of fuel for people. By stopping the subsidies, the price of fuel went up.

The grants are meant to help businesses deal with this change.

Who has gotten the grant money so far?

Over 100,000 small businesses have received N50,000 each.

These businesses are called micro-businesses. They typically have one or two employees and make less than N3 million per year.

The goal is to give grants to micro-businesses in all 774 local government areas of Nigeria.

How can I apply for the grant?

The application process for the grant program is closed as of April 17, 2024. However, there is a chance that applications may be reopened in the future. Here’s what you would need to do if applications open again:

  1. Check Eligibility: Make sure your business qualifies for the grant. This typically means being a micro-business with one or two employees and a yearly income less than N3 million.
  2. Gather Documents: Collect your Bank Verification Number (BVN) and National Identification Number (NIN) for the application.
  3. Submit Application: Apply through the official channel, which could be an online portal or a physical form. Watch for announcements from the program organizers for instructions.
  4. Verification Process: After submitting your application, it will be checked to make sure you qualify and the information is correct.
  5. Grant Disbursement: If your application is approved, you will get the N50,000 grant money directly deposited into your bank account.
  6. Follow Up: Stay updated on any communication from the program about your application status. Respond promptly if there are additional requirements.

We recommend following the Nigerian government’s official channels for the latest updates on the grant program, including if and when applications reopen.
