How To Apply For Survival Fund Grant By The Federal Government of Nigeria & CBN ( A Complete Guide by INFOGUIDER.COM.NG)

The application for Survival Fund, a grant scheme by the Federal Government of Nigeria has just began.

Here is a complete guide on how you can successfully apply and be a part of those to receive the monetary aid from the government.

Before we go on, let me briefly explain what the Covid-19 Survival Fund is all about and who is eligible to receive the grant.

The Covid-19 Survival Fund is a scheme created and monitored by the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, the Central Bank of Nigeria and some Not-for-profit organisations in the country to assist several businesses affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

The application began on the 21st of September 2020. That is today! It will continue until 15th of October 2020.

Under the scheme, eligible individuals and businesses will receive grants ranging from N30,000 to N50,000.

Before applying for the grant, it is important you understand that the business grant is in three different categories. This will help you figure out the right category for you to apply.

Below, you will the three categories listed and well explained.

The Survival Fund Categories

Business Owners/Employers Category

This category is for small business owners and employers of labour who are it difficult to pay salaries.

Provided that the salary of your fall within the range of N30,000 to N50,000, you can apply and have the government take over the payment of these workers in your business for 3 months.

However, you cannot register more than 10 workers per business under this category.

The number of businesses that can register for this is limited so you need to submit your application as soon as you can.

Artisans And Transport Workers Category

Under this category, artisans and transport workers whose application is successful, will receive N30,000 grant from the Survival Fund to support their business.

If you are a taxi driver, Okada rider etc, this is the right category to apply for. And you need to do that very fast as the number of slots available for this is not much.

Business Formalisation Category

The Business Formalisation Category is for persons who are interested in registering their business with the Cor porate Affairs Commission but do not have the money to do that.

Through the Survival Fund scheme, you will be allowed to register or incorporate your business with the agency free of charge. Yes, the government will take care of the cost for you.

The General Category

This category is for individuals whose businesses do not qualify for the first 3 categories and grant.

Under the general category, successful applicants will be given N50,000 each to help boost their businesses.

This is the best category for anyone to apply as the requirements are not much. However, you will need to submit your application as soon as possible to increase your chances of being among the first set of people to be considered for it.

The Requirements For Applying For The Covid-19 Survival Fund

The following are the requirements for applying for the Survival Fund scheme by the government:

1. Applicant must be a Nigerian by nationality and must be living within the country.
2. Applicant must have an existing business that has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
3. It is best if the business have already been registered with the government although applicants intending to register the business under the Formalisation category are also welcome.
4. Relevant means of identification, a working email address, bank account etc.

Steps To Successfully Apply For The Business Grant

You can apply under the General category or go for the Business Formalisation category if you intend to register and start a business soon. However, I think the General category is best for you. You can decide on what to do with your N50K after you have received it.

Yes you can help her. But since her business is not registered, why not register her under the business formalisation category?

She'll gain a lot from it in the long run

Please, I don't know why Account numbers and BVNs of the school employees /teachers are needed under the business category. Will the money /salary be paid directly into teachers' bank account or through the employer /School account? Thank you

The way it is right now, it seems the teachers will be getting the money directly into their accounts.

If they don't go that way, then they will definitely use those information to monitor their accounts just to be sure they're getting the money meant for them
