[ARCHIVED] Maricopa County Small Business Grant Program Will Begin Soon


Phoenix - Maricopa County is providing relief to small businesses and non-profits impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board of Supervisors approved $23 million in federal CARES Act funding for the grant program as many businesses struggle to stay open or reopen. The Small Business Relief Program will provide up to $10,000 in grants to reimburse businesses and non-profits (501(c)3) for lost revenues during March and April. The application period opens next week.

“We know a lot of businesses would be going strong if not for the pandemic,“ said Clint Hickman, District 4, Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. “What we have seen is unprecedented. The Board hopes this money can keep businesses and non-profits afloat, so they can keep people working and money flowing in the local economy.”

Maricopa County partnered with the Arizona Community Foundation to administer this program on behalf of the County. Grants will be provided on a rolling, first come, first served basis until funding is exhausted or the grant period closes. Applications will be accepted from July 9 through July 31, 2020. Applicants will need to meet pre-qualification guidelines, answer a series of questions about their business, and provide requested documentation.

The grants will be open to businesses and non-profits across Maricopa County, except those in the cities of Phoenix and Mesa since those cities also received significant CARES Act money and are operating similar programs.
