We will be allocating a portion of the County's $18.6 milion Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to support small businesses and non-profit organizations through a county administered grant program called the Washington County Small Business and Non-Proft Relief Grant. The purpose of the Small Business and Non-Profit Relief Grant is to financially assist small businesses and non-profits who were severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board of Commissioners approved the Small Business and Non-Profit Relief Grant program to provide up to $7.5 milon of the federal CARES Act funds in financial assistance to help during these unprecedented and challenging times.
