[ARCHIVED] Pandemic Recovery Grants Information Briefing Scheduled

Operators of small businesses and non-profits in Winston-Salem can learn more about applying for local pandemic recovery grants during a virtual public briefing held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 15. Grant applications will be accepted starting in January. 

The briefing will be held via Zoom and will livestream on CityofWS.org/YouTube. Viewers who want to ask questions should sign in to participate in the briefing and pose questions through the chat box. A link to participate will be posted on CityofWS.org/CLFRF. The link will not be active until 15 minutes before the briefing starts.

The City Council voted Nov. 15 to allocate $3 million to assist small businesses and non-profits behind on their rent, mortgage, or utilities payments because of the pandemic: $1 million each for small businesses, small social service non-profits, and small non-profits in the areas of travel, tourism, hospitality and the arts. The money is part of the $51.7 million the city is receiving in federal pandemic relief through the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund.

The city has contracted with the United Way of Forsyth County to administer the grants. Starting in January applicants will apply online through the United Way’s e-CImpact system. All applicants will need to provide a W-9 and copies of their past-due bills. Businesses need to provide documentation of their registration with the N.C. Secretary of State. Non-profits need to provide their tax-exempt determination, a letter from their board authorizing their application, and information on client demographics.

Grants up to $25,000 will be available to businesses with less than 25 full-time employees or the equivalent, and to non-profits with an annual operating budget of less than $1 million, not counting “pass-through” funds from other sources that are distributed to the non-profit’s clients. 

More details about the recovery-grants program, including complete eligibility criteria and how grant requests will be prioritized, are posted at CityofWS.org/CLFRF
