Johnson County CARES Small Business Grant ProgramPosted on November 3rd, 2020
Welcome to the Johnson County CARES Small Business Grant Application. The Small Business Grant Program is designed to help address the economic hardships that small businesses are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Small Business Grant Program offers Johnson County small businesses a one-time $10,000 grant to help offset business expenses and/or revenue loss incurred due to COVID-19. The Johnson County Commission has allocated $13.5M in small business relief grants allowing 1,350 small businesses to receive grants. It is anticipated that the high volume of applicants will exceed the total grants available.
To be eligible for a grant, your small business (profit or non-profit) must:
NOTE: Federal CARES Relief funding guidelines require collecting documentation to verify applicant eligibility.
Expenses or revenue losses that have been reimbursed from other relief funding sources (i.e. PPP, EIDL, HIRE Fund, CDBG, County Relief funds, etc) are not eligible to be reimbursed by this grant.
Attached here is the official FAQ for the program and the full business application, both in PDF format.
