Castle Rock approves more COVID-19 small business grants

Council awards 36 grants to aid small businesses in pandemic

Posted

The Castle Rock Town Council has continued a COVID-19 Small Business Support Grant Program to aid local businesses.

The council approved another round of grants in September to help small local businesses impacted by the pandemic, according to a town news release.

Businesses that applied provided documentation of interruptions between May 1 and Aug. 31, including a revenue loss of at least $5,000. The town compared that information to the same period in 2019.

The town received 54 applications online, according to the release. A group of staff and community members reviewed the applications and council awarded 36 of the businesses a $5,000 grant on Oct. 6. Mayor Jason Gray recused himself from the 5-0 vote.

The town expects to be reimbursed for the cost of the program through CARES Act funding.
