Small Business Resilience Grants -- Round IIIIn 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 66 grants totaling more than $334,000 to area businesses. Those grants were funded in part through a CARES act grant received by the City of Delphi from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs that provided up to $198,600 to create and retain jobs meeting low to moderate income eligibility guidelines.
The City of Delphi has received an additional award of $250,000 from Phase III of the OCRA CARES act grant. As a result, the City is pleased to announce a third round of the Small Business Resilience Grant (SBRG III) 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 III 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.
Application process opens June 8, 2021
Deadline for submission is 4:30 p.m., Friday, June 25, 2021.
