Small businesses across Delaware are getting state grants to cover the cost of providing incentives for vaccinated customers.

More the 200 will receive state grants up to $5,000 for reimbursements, the state announced Monday.

About 80 are in the food and drink business. Their incentives vary. Some are food; some are drink; some are something else. Sometimes there’s free stuff; sometimes there’s a discount. Some list qualifications. And some offers are available only at scattered outlets of popular chains.
