Maricopa County is launching a new $23 million Small Business Grant program to assist small businesses and nonprofits hit by COVID-19.
The county program will start accepting applications on July 9th and they will be accepted through July 31st.
Small businesses and nonprofits can receive as much as $10,000 through the grants which is funded via the federal CARES Act response to COVID-19.
We know a lot of businesses would be going strong if not for the pandemic,“ said Clint Hickman, Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. “What we have seen is unprecedented. The Board hopes this money can keep businesses and non-profits afloat, so they can keep people working and money flowing in the local economy.”
The Arizona Community Foundation is helping the county administer the grant program.
