Cobb County Government is partnering with SelectCobb to provide relief to small businesses that have been devastated by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Small Business Relief Grant has been established to assist businesses of up to 100 employees with various operational and overhead expenses. The program will be funded by way of a portion of Cobb County’s disbursement of funding via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. These funds are intended to be used by communities to deal with the impacts of COVID-19. The Cobb County Board of Commissioners has allocated $50 million to be disbursed by SelectCobb to small businesses impacted by the pandemic. The information below will assist companies in learning about the grant tiers, eligible uses of funds, eligibility criteria, the application process, the required memorandum of understanding, and details on how grant monies will be disbursed.
Grants are available in three tiers as follows:
1 to 10 employees – up to $20,000
