• I am a sole proprietor WITHOUT employees. Can I apply for a ReStart Grant?• As a seasonal business not intending to restart until next summer, should we apply for this grant or hope that there will be additional funds in place later leaving this grant money available to those operating currently?• How will the size of grants be determined?• I have received an EIDL loan but NO ADVANCE (grant) money (because I don't have employees). Do I still qualify for a ReStart grant?• First-come, first-served?
