Phase II Of The Small Business Grant Program For Rent Begins July 1

Small businesses in York, Poquoson, and Williamsburg are now eligible again for up to $15,000 in covid-19 relief grants.

The three localities are partnering to launch Phase II of the covid-19 Small Business Grant Program to reimburse local small businesses for rent or mortgage expenses during the pandemic.

The grant offers up to six months of rent up to $15,000 for businesses in the three participating localities who had 20 or fewer fill-time equivalent employees at some point during the pandemic.

Businesses who previously received funding during Phase I of this Small Business Grant Program will have those funds deducted from the overall $15,000. Businesses do need to have submitted an application during Phase I in order to be eligible for this Phase II of relief funding.

 The grant funds must only go toward rent or mortgage. As part of the program guidelines, businesses must show proof of ownership and proof of payment for rent or mortgage in order to qualify.

Applications will be accepted starting Thursday, July 1. York County businesses can apply at; Williamsburg businesses can apply at; and Poquoson businesses can apply at
