Local small business owners who have lost money because of the ongoing pandemic may qualify for up to $15,000 in grants from the County, but time is running out to apply for the funds.

The County is currently accepting applications for the Small Business Rental Assistance program, which provides up to $10,000 to cover past-due rent, and Small Business Protective Retrofit Grant, which will reimburse businesses up to $5,000 for costs such as purchasing personal protective equipment for employees and installing no-touch doors and walk-up windows.

Grant awards could be made in late August.
