If your local business or nonprofit organization was hurt by the executive orders issued in efforts to slow the spread of COVID 19, grants for up to $10,000 are still available through the Dodge County Business and Nonprofit Relief Grants Program.
The temporary relief grants program was launched to provide monetary assistance to local businesses and nonprofits that were negatively impacted by the pandemic-related executive orders. Dodge County received $413,321 from the state to fund and manage the grants program. At their meeting February 9, the Dodge County Commissioners approved changes to the program, including:
- raising the maximum grant award
- lowering the requisite number of employees working in businesses or nonprofits that are seeking the assistance.
The grants of up to $10,000 – up from $7,500 - will be awarded to eligible businesses and nonprofits on a first-come, first-served basis. Businesses and nonprofits may review eligibility requirements and the application at bit.ly/dodgereliefgrants. The deadline for applications has been extended to March 1.
