Small Business Grants Available in Several Local Counties

Several local jurisdictions are offering another round of grant funding to small businesses who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, or who would like financial assistance to help purchase protective equipment for their employees.

Prince William County is still accepting applications for their business relief program, which offers grants of up to $10,000 for for-profit or 501(c)(3) organizations with a valid Prince William County business license and less than $2.5 million in revenue in 2019.

In Maryland, Charles County is offering for-profit businesses grants of up to $10,000, so long as they meet a set of requirements, including being based in the county and having between 5 and 75 employees.

Montgomery and Anne Arundel counties have created small business employee protection grants, which are designed to help businesses defray costs related to purchasing protective equipment for workers, safety signage, and other COVID-mitigation measures.

Anne Arundel’s program is currently accepting applications and is open to businesses with 50 or fewer employees; Montgomery’s program will be rolled out in the near future and will provide county-based small businesses with up to $5,000.
