Small business grants extended to Friday, November 20

The Yuma County Small Business Relief Program has been extended to November 20.
The Yuma County Commissioners, and City Councils of Eckley, Wray, and Yuma understand the challenges that small businesses in our community are facing due to the COVID 19 pandemic. With that in mind, a “Small Business Relief Program” has been established utilizing CARES Act funding in order to provide grants of up to $5,000 to businesses located in Yuma County for reimbursement of business interruption costs, unbudgeted expenses, and other COVID-19 related expenses reasonably necessary to satisfy the funds eligibility criteria.
Expenses must have been incurred beginning March 1, 2020 and due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Applications will be accepted from November 13, 2020 to November 20, 2020.
