The Common Council has authorized a fourth round of the Delphi Small Business Resilience Grant (SBRG IV) program initiated in 2020 to assist businesses that have been impacted by the COVID pandemic. The SBRG IV grant is available to businesses that have been located in the City Delphi or within one mile of the corporate limits since July 1, 2021. The maximum possible award is $5,000 per business.
Since 2020, 101 grants totaling more than $478,000 have been awarded to 53 businesses for COVID assistance, funded in large part through grants from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs. In SBRG IV the City will distribute the remaining $73,500 in OCRA funds. Priority will be given to businesses that have not received funding in all of the three previous rounds and to businesses located within the corporate limits.
