KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - According to the Tennessee Department of Revenue, more than 33,000 small businesses in Tennessee are eligible for the Tennessee Business Relief Program.

Samantha Singer with the Department of Revenue says right now nearly 60 percent of those business owners still haven’t certified their business to claim a payment.

Governor Bill Lee first announced the program back in June.

Since then, Singer says they’ve sent out nearly half of the $200 million they have within the program to 13,000 businesses.

Small businesses can earn between $2,500 to $30,000 towards their business.

How much a business receives depends on the gross sales of the business.
