The Greene County Department of Development will be distributing financial assistance to aid small businesses in Greene County with relief from the COVID-19 crisis. Eligible small businesses can apply for up to $10,000 to use for rent/mortgage, non-municipal utilities, business insurance, and COVID-19 related expenses (e.g. masks, hand sanitizer, gloves, plexiglass partitions, etc.). Greene County is utilizing $500,000 of its CARES allotment for this grant program.
The intent of this grant is to aid small businesses greatly impacted by COVID-19 that have not already received federal or local assistance. This grant is aimed at small businesses that were interrupted through required closures, voluntary closures to promote social distancing, or that were impacted by decreased customer demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We know this pandemic has been difficult for so many people and businesses in Greene County. Our department is here to support you.
The application and more information can be found here.
