Applications open week of August 24 and will remain open for 10 days.
The York County Commissioners voted to use a portion of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to support YoCo Strong Restart Fund, a small business and nonprofit organization grant program. The County allocated $4 million for nonprofit organizations and $10 million for small businesses. Eligible organizations will receive grant funding between $10,000 to $35,000.
Organizations are eligible if they have been negatively impacted by the COVID‐19 pandemic and meet any of the following criteria:
- Small business with less than 50 full‐time equivalent employees and gross revenues of $3 million or less for the 12‐month period.
- Restaurant with less than 75 full‐time equivalent employees.
- Nonprofit organization with fewer than 75 full‐time equivalent employees and annual revenue of $3 million or less.
York County Economic Alliance and the Community First Fund will administer the process for this funding to ensure that money is directed to those organizations with the greatest need. Priority will be given to those who did not receive other government support (such as through the PPP program), low to moderate income businesses, minority owned businesses, and small non‐profit organizations.
The online application portal will be open for 10 days beginning the week of August 24th. Assistance and applications are available in English and Spanish. When the applications are received, an unbiased third‐party vendor will score each application and complete background and information checks, underwriting, and fraud protection.
The York County Economic Alliance team is available to answer questions by phone (717-848-4000) or email at info@YoCoStrong.org.
