More funds are now available to help some Douglas County businesses recoup costs after the latest executive order from the governor’s shutdown and restrictions as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Douglas County commissioners approved a state Business Relief Grant in the amount of $754,292 that will be disbursed to area businesses in the form of an economic development relief grant.
Douglas County Auditor/Treasurer Char Rosenow explained to the commissioners that the process is going to be similar to the CARES Act grants process.
Eligible businesses are those listed in Executive Order 20-99, or those directly impacted by the limited operation of those businesses listed in Executive Order 20-99.
Applications are open as of Wednesday, Jan. 6, and will close on Friday, Jan. 29, and need to be submitted online at livingalexarea.org, which is where more information about the grants can be found.
