Small Business Grant Program Application

The Kentucky Department for Local Government has allocated funding from Kentucky’s share of the Federal Coronavirus Relief Fund to assist counties and cities in response to Covid-19.  A portion of Union County’s allocation, which is based on population, has been set aside for immediate grant assistance to already existing and qualifying small businesses with less than 50 employees.  The purpose of this grant program is to capture those businesses that were not assisted by other sources.

To be qualified for this program your business must:

  • Be located in Union County
  • Have less than 50 employees
  • Pay occupancy tax
  • Received less than $5,000 in funding from the SBA programs (PPP, EIDL, etc.)

The application process will open on Friday, October 16, 2020 and will close on Friday, November 6, 2020 to give ample time for submission.  Awards will be granted on Friday, November 13, 2020.  There is a possibility that this timeline will be altered due to unforeseen circumstances given the nature of the pandemic.
