Grants may be used for the following:

  • Normal operating costs, such as rent, payroll, job training, taxes, debt service, or similar costs
  • Purchase of PPE, sanitization services, or other COVID-19 related costs


Grant applications will be accepted Monday, April 12, 2021 through Friday, April 30, 2021.  Applications will be reviewed after the closing date, and all approved grants will be disbursed no later than June 30, 2021.
