The Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) has approved the selection of twenty-nine local businesses to receive funding from COVID-19 Immediate Response Grant.
Based on criteria presented in the grant application, FEDCO and the Grant Oversight Team selected twenty-nine businesses to receive grant funding, with awards ranging from $4,000 - $10,000.
Thirty-eight businesses applied for the funds; of that number, three were over the income limit per grant guidelines, and six did not meet HUD low to moderate income requirements. Six businesses submitted incomplete applications and could not be considered.
All awardees for the COVID-19 Immediate Response Grant funding have been contacted. The funds have been requested from the state (OCRA) and will hopefully be in Fulton County within two weeks. At that time, agreements with awardees will be signed and checks will be distributed.
FEDCO will release the names of the recipients after agreements are signed and checks have been distributed.
FEDCO and the Grant Oversight Team thank you for your patience as we continue working with the County, OCRA and other officials to complete this process and be ready to receive and disperse the COVID-19 Grant Funding.For questions, please contact FEDCO at 574-223-3326.
