Storey County Launches Grant Program to Help Local Small Business

Storey County Launches Grant Program to Help Local Small Business
Funding available to assist small businesses impacted by COVID-19 with expenses like PPE, utilities, and retrofits. Funding amounts available are $5,000 and $10,000 depending on individual businesses. 

Starting September 8, Storey County begins accepting applications for a small business grant program designed to help businesses deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications are accepted through October 6. Grants are awarded on an as-needed and first-come, first-served basis.

For details on eligible businesses and funding amounts, and to preview the application, visit the Nevada Association of Counties website.

“Small businesses are the life blood of our local economy, when they are strong, we are strong. We know that businesses and their employees were struggling and continue to struggle with the restrictions and closures as a part of the response to the pandemic. The county is committed to assisting those in need as much as possible,” Marshall McBride, chair of the Storey County Commissioners, said.

To be eligible you must have a Storey County business license, or applicable state business license.

The county has also partnered with the University of Nevada’s Small Business Development Center to assist businesses with the application process. Request free and confidential assistance at www.nevadasbdc.org or by calling 800-240-7094 to make an appointment with a counselor through one of the 13 statewide locations.

The funding for this program comes from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. All eligible businesses impacted by COVID-19 are urged to seek grant funding through this program.
