Grants to Maryland businesses in eligible locations to mitigate the adverse financial effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Funding is intended to support local hotels, restaurants, and home-based businesses that have been conducting business for at least one year, have incurred financial losses caused directly or indirectly by the pandemic, and have pledged to reopen. Requests will be accepted from businesses located in Howard County.
The purpose of these grants is to provide financial assistance to Howard County businesses in targeted sectors that have been most impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency and plan to re-open.
Because of the limited funding available, eligible sectors have been identified and the grant formula is intended to distribute funds to all qualified businesses in that cohort.
There are three grant categories available:
Eligible uses of funds include reimbursement for the costs of business interruption caused by the COVID-19 mandated business closures, or for costs required to re-open safely.
