The grants program launched at the beginning of August to provide economic relief to small businesses hardest hit in St. Lucie County due to COVID-19 has been successfully processing applications. Phase two of the program will launch on September 28 with some new criteria.
Grants up to $10,000, which do not have to be repaid, will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis to qualifying businesses with 11-25 employees and total revenue of less than $2 million. Priority is being given to businesses that did not receive funding through other federal, state, or local programs related to COVID-19. Businesses with up to 10 employees are still eligible and encouraged to apply.
The process has been made as simple as possible, with a web portal www.recoverstlucie.org that contains guidelines and eligibility requirements, as well as a checklist of documents needed before completing the online application.
