Reading time: 3 min.

Before moving on to the topic of micro-grants, it is appropriate to have an understanding of the grant in general.

After all, not everyone today knows what a grant is, a variety of grant programs and all the opportunities that open up to a future or existing entrepreneur in general.

Therefore, let's start with the main thing, with the very concept of the term "grant", which translated from English means a free loan.

And so it is, in practice a grant is a type of targeted financing, in the form of a loan. That is, it is a certain amount of funds provided on clearly defined terms.

Currently, the government project "eRobota" provides grants to Ukrainians for starting a business and developing entrepreneurship.

The "grant for your own business" program has been in operation for several years, to be precise, it started in July 2022.

Under this program, you can get a micro-grant for starting or developing a business in the amount of 50 to 250 thousand hryvnias.

Money can be spent on the purchase of furniture, appliances or equipment in 100% ratio.

Half of the grant money can be spent on the purchase of raw materials and materials for work.

In addition, grant funds can be used to pay for the rent of the premises, but it should be taken into account that no more than 25% of the grant amount.

And also for marketing and advertising services, also in the percentage ratio, here 10% of the grant.

The size of the micro-grant is determined according to the recipient's request. Funding under this program ranges from 50,000 to 250,000 hryvnias.

If you plan to start a business on your own, that is, without plans to employ employees, then there is an opportunity to receive funding from the state in the amount of 50,000 to 75,000 hryvnias for opening a sole proprietorship.

If you are considering adding additional hands to your business, that is, creating at least one workplace, then financing under such conditions can be within the limits of up to 150,000 hryvnias.

If you attract two workplaces, there is an opportunity to become the winner of a grant of 250,000 hryvnias.

It should also be taken into account that under this program, a mandatory condition is the creation of new jobs within 6 months from the date of receipt of funds.

After all, the purpose of providing irrevocable state aid in the form of micro-grants is to promote the employment of the population and the creation or development of one's own business.

It is worth paying attention to the fact that a mandatory condition of the micro-grant program is the creation and preservation of jobs within 3 years, depending on the size of the micro-grant, as well as the payment of the amount of the micro-grant in the form of taxes, fees and ESS.

In case of non-fulfillment of these conditions, the recipient is obliged to return the difference between the amount of the received micro-grant and the payments actually paid.
