GRANT FUNDING AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT BUSINESSES IN KEIZER IMPACTED BY COVID-19 SUPPORT FOR KEIZER BUSINESSES IMPACTED BY THE COVID -19 PANDEMIC IS AVAILABLE!
The City of Keizer has been given another opportunity to support businesses adversely impacted by Covid-19 through a partnership with Business Oregon. Eligible businesses must be located in Keizer, have 25 or fewer employees, have been adversely affected by Executive Order 20-12 or have a one-month decline in sales greater than 50% in the month of March or April 2020. Both for profit and nonprofit organizations are eligible. If a business has accessed federal CARES Act funding, they are not eligible for this program.
The City of Keizer will have a total of $90,000 to award to our local business. This includes $45,000 from a Business Oregon grant and $45,000 of matching funds from the City of Keizer. The amount of the grant will be dependent upon the number of employees and fixed operating expenses, as set by Business Oregon. Grant amounts will range from $2,500 to $25,000.
Applications will be available on the City of Keizer’s website on August 25, 2020.
First round applications will be reviewed on September 9, 2020.
We look forward to helping make a difference!
