Funds are reserved for small businesses (250 employers or less) and may be used to clean facilities and support other related emergency/contingency support needs.  The grant will support layoff aversion strategies and activities designed to prevent, or minimize the duration of unemployment resulting from layoffs due to COVID-19.

In the interest of wide-scale regional participation and equitable coverage, the two Boards will use this funding to award individual funding awards of $2,000 each to approximately 145 eligible businesses.  Grant funding will be awarded to small businesses on a reimbursement basis once documentation is submitted to verify expenditures. Reimbursement process, timeline, and required documentation will be discussed and finalized during the application process.

Performance measures including the number of jobs saved, delivery of essential services/goods to the community, and project-specific results will also be required as part of the grant award.
