Details: Eligible small businesses can apply for up to $10,000 to use for working capital such as payroll, rent, and other fixed costs.The County is utilizing $5 million of its CARES Act allotment for the first round of assistance. Future rounds will be contemplated after a thorough evaluation of the program.
In general, the overall intent of this program is to help small businesses that have been impacted the most by COVID-19 and have not already received federal assistance. The program is aimed at small businesses that were interrupted through required closures, had to close voluntarily to promote social distancing, or that were impacted by decreased customer demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Eligible businesses must have a physical storefront within Hamilton County. Additional guidance, criteria, and restrictions will be provided prior to the launch.
