MAY 19, 2020: The Town of Emmitsburg recognizes the struggles and challenges our small businesses are facing during this disruptive pandemic. In response to this disaster, Mayor Briggs and the Board of Commissioners are announcing a COVID-19 Emergency Micro-Grant. This micro-grant has been created to support existing businesses with a total funding of $30,000 for the emergency funding program. The Town will award a onetime grant with no repayment due to those who have been impacted by the COVID-19 restrictions placed on businesses, meet the criteria, and are within the town limits. The C-19 Emergency Micro grant will open today May 19,2019. Based upon the number of applications received, the $30,000 will be distributed evenly to all eligible businesses that meet the criteria, not to exceed $1,000. Nonprofits, churches, banks/financial institutions, investment, real-estate entities, chains/franchises, and government agencies are not eligible to apply.
All applications received will be evaluated based on the mandated criteria and supporting documentation. Applications must be emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot email the application, please mail it to the Town of Emmitsburg, 300A South Seton Avenue, Emmitsburg, MD 21727 and call the Town Office at 301-600-6300 once you have mailed the documents.
