Clatsop Economic Development Resources has received $230,000 as part of a second round of state relief for small businesses and nonprofits. A first round distributed nearly $120,000.
Grant amounts will range between $2,500 and $25,000 depending on the number of employees. Businesses with 25 or fewer employees, as well as those who have received prior federal support, are now eligible. Recipients must reduce any state award by the amount they have received in federal relief.
The application is available at clatsopcc.edu/cedr. Applicants may apply online or by downloading and completing a PDF file. Applications are due before Sept. 12.
Should the total amount requested exceed the monies available, a random selection process will be administered. The grants will likely be distributed by Oct. 10.
