RESTART Grants will award up to $5,000 to businesses registered in Marion County of 150 employees or less based on reimbursements for purchases of PPE, dividers, hand sanitizer stations, washable restaurant menus, and more. Small business owners need to keep their receipts to be reimbursed by RESTART Grants.
