Small Business Resilience Grants -- Round IVIn recognition of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on local businesses, the City of Delphi initiated a Small Business Resilience Grant (SBRG) program in 2020 that awarded 101 grants totaling more than $478,200 to area businesses. Those grants were funded in part through two CARES act grants received by the City of Delphi from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs that provided more than $440,000 to create and retain jobs meeting low to moderate income eligibility guidelines.
The City of Delphi has $73,500 remaining in funds from Phase III of the OCRA CARES Act grant. As a result, the City is pleased to announce a fourth round of the Small Business Resilience Grant (SBRG IV) program. The purpose of the OCRA grant is to help businesses retain, rehire, and add low-to-moderate income employees. To be eligible for consideration for SBRG IV grants, businesses MUST complete and submit the Income Verification Form with their application. Other changes from previous rounds include that businesses within the city limits or within one mile of the corporate limits and in Carroll County are eligible. Not-for-profit organizations and government entities are not eligible to receive the OCRA funds and thus will not be eligible for this round of grants.
NOW CLOSED: Completed applications and all documentation were due by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, January 14, 2022. The Common Council will review applications and approve awards at its meeting on February 7, 2022.
