Small Business Reopening Grants in Montgomery County, Maryland

Small Business Reopening Grants in Montgomery County, Maryland

 

The “Reopen Montgomery Small Business Grant Program,” which was created by the Montgomery County Council with the support of County Executive Marc Elrich, is continuing to accept applications from businesses to help with reopening expenses  incurred to comply with County and State health and safety reopening requirements related to the COVID 19 health crisis. The $14 million program, which was launched in July, is helping businesses with grants that could be as much as $5,000.

Businesses and nonprofit organizations may be eligible for grants for expenditures they have incurred related to health and safety requirements from the State and County for reopening their business between March 16, 2020, and 30 days following the date when the County declares it is moving to Phase 3 of reopening. The County is still operating under Phase 2 reopening guidelines.

Details on the program and application information—in English and Spanish—can be found at montgomerycountymd.gov/biz-resources/reopen.

Questions about the Reopen Montgomery program can be emailed to Reopen@montgomerycountymd.gov.

The program to date has received 2,560 applications. At this point, 287 applications have been approved, with an average grant of $3,438. A total of $986,753 has been approved for qualified applicants and approximately $13 million remains available for awards.

Applicants who have received grants less than the allowable maximum and who have additional eligible expenses can reapply for additional grants.
