North Carolina -- Phase 2 of the North Carolina Department of Revenue's Business Recovery Grant Program has begun, including adjustments to the program's eligibility criteria. According to the agency, $200 million is still available, and more businesses will now be eligible for the incentives.

BRG will make a payment to a qualifying North Carolina firm that lost at least 20% of its revenue due to the epidemic. The grant amount is based on a percentage of the eligible business's economic loss or $500,000, whichever is less. The deadline for applications is June 1, 2022.

For Phase 2, gross receipts are calculated using the sum of the following gross receipts:

If the business did not report gross receipts on line 1 of Form E-500, it may substitute the sum of the receipts listed on lines 4 through 8 of Form E-500 in place of gross receipts listed on line 1 of Form E-500;
Gross receipts that meet all of the following criteria:
