The Umatilla Electric Cooperative Business Resource Center announced that grants are available for small businesses that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
A total of $3 million has been allocated to the CDBG-CV Statewide Emergency Small Business & Microenterprise Grant Program. This program has been funded with federal grant funds from the Oregon Community Development Block Grant program CARES Act funding for communities affected by COVID-19.
Grant amounts range from $2,500 to $30,000. If qualifying as an LMI microenterprise (5 or fewer employees, including owner), the maximum grant amount is $10,000.
If qualifying as a small business (more than 5 employees), the maximum grant amount is $30,000 ($2,500 per LMI job retained, up to $30,000). Microenterprises may apply using small business criteria.
The program will be launched on Jan. 23 and will close on Jan. 27.
