The CARES Act grants continue in Grant County.
We have received close to 200 business applications for the CARES Act grant and so far we have received word that nearly 150 have received or will receive grant funds with another 40 businesses pending approval.
A push has been made to reach the Hispanic community in Grant County. Paperwork has begun translation and efforts are being made to contact individual businesses either with in-person visits or phone calls, urging them to review and apply for the CARES Act.
There is still room for more businesses to apply, but funds are going fast. If you know of any businesses who have been considerably impacted by COVID-19, we ask that you have them apply. Businesses can find the application at www.grantedc.com/grants/ and submit the applications to Nic at the Gmail address listed on the website.
The process does take a couple of weeks, so the sooner we can get applications in from businesses the more quickly they can receive word. Checks have already gone out to nearly fifty businesses, with another 100 in the works. The EDC has been working hard to reach as many businesses as possible, please share the application so we can be sure to fully utilize our allocated funds!
