City Passes Grant Program for Local Businesses

The Common Council passed a new Grant Program to help businesses that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grant program makes $100,000 available for businesses with less than 15 full-time equivalent employees, must have a brick and mortar building in the city, and must either be closed or have limited operations.

The grants will be for up to $2000 and can be used for mortgage, lease, or rent payments; utilities; or E-commerce or website development.

The measure passed unanimously, applications will be available by Noon on April 29th, with applications due by 8:00 AM on May 4th.
