Beginning Monday June 15, 2020, the state is opening a very brief window for your local small businesses to apply for a $2,500 emergency support grant. We have been asked to help spread the word so that no business, no matter where or how tiny, misses an opportunity for this help. In addition: these businesses will need a letter from a local organization or local official testifying that this business was in fact in operation at the beginning of the year. The City Clerk has the template and is willing to work with businesses to ensure they receive their letter in a timely fashion. Applications must be submitted by June 23rd.
