The YoCo Strong Restart program was created after the York County Commissioners voted to allocate a portion of the $40.5 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to support a small business and nonprofit organization grant program. The YoCo Strong Restart program will be administered by a partnership with the York County Economic Alliance and Community First Fund.
The County will dedicate $10 million for small business support, and $4 million for nonprofit support. Grants amounts will range from $10,000 and $35,000 to eligible organizations negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In preparation for the application to open for small businesses and nonprofits, we are launching a series of virtual education sessions to go over the facets of applying for funding as a business owner. This session will go over the guidelines and paperwork often required when filing for business funding to assist our most vulnerable populations and those in most need of this financial support.
Following the presentation, a Q&A session with the expert/s will follow. Before attending this session, we encourage you to review the information on www.YoCoStrong.org.
There is no cost to attend this session, but registration is required. Sessions will be recorded and then uploaded to YoCoStrong.org.
