Small Business Grant Funds Soon Available

Broward County Commission is establishing a grant program using CARES Act funds for small businesses and non-profits in Broward to help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19. The application period will open soon. The purpose of the Grant is to aid small businesses that employ 20 people or less. Grants to small businesses under the program will be used to reimburse the costs of business interruption related expenditures caused by COVID-19's required closures and/or operating restrictions. The County will be offering free technical assistance from Broward County-identified partners to assist businesses in understanding the eligibility criteria and required documents necessary to prepare applications.
