The City  recognizes that small businesses have suffered substantial economic loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the economic impact on our businesses, the City’s Department of Economic Development and Strategy budgeted $60,000 and created the Small Business COVID-19 Relief Forgivable Loan Program. This forgivable loan program will be awarded on a first-come-first serve-basis and provide direct funding for rent/mortgage, payroll, or utility expenses. Eligible businesses are encouraged to apply immediately. Learn more.

We have compiled a list of helpful resources, and will continue to update this list on an ongoing basis.
