Eligible hotels are located in Harford County.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The grant amount will be determined by the total number of qualified applicants.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Business MAY receive a grant allocation from the Hotel Relief Grant even if they have already received funding through another Harford County COVID-19 Business Relief Grant program; however, priority funding will be given to first-time COVID-19 grant funding recipients. If you applied for other relief grants and were deemed ineligible because your business did not meet the criteria for eligibility, you may still be eligible for the Hotel Relief Grant Program - Round 2, and are encouraged to apply.

Funds may not be used to fund items outside of their normal operating cost. Prohibited costs include the following, which are not directly related to COVID-19 prevention:
- Purchase of equipment and soft goods
- Infrastructure improvements
- Technology upgrades
