City of Union offers Small Business Grant Program to help with interruptions as a result of COVID

At the regular meeting of the Union City Commission on August 3, the City announced a new program aimed at helping local businesses remain viable and strong during these uncertain times.

The Union Small Business Grant Program is a program that can award up to $5,000 for expenditures related to business interruption as a result of forced closures stemming from COVID-19.

“The lifeblood of our communities is really our small businesses,” Mayor Larry Solomon announced. “Through this program, we can help support this vital pillar of our community and ensure these proprietors make it through this pandemic.”

This grant program is a reimbursement program only. Only expenses such as rent/mortgage payments or expenses related to keeping their employees and the public safe from infection with COVID-19 are eligible. To qualify, businesses must be located in the city limits of the City of Union, and meet other eligibility requirements. 

Interested applicants can apply by picking up an application at the City Building (1843 Mt. Zion Road). Applications may be printed online, or an online application can be submitted at www.cityofunionky.org.  To file an online application, click on the “Corona-Virus” header, then select “Small Business Grants.”

The deadline to apply for funding is August 24. Funding will be dispersed upon successful review of all required materials and confirmation of business eligibility by the Union City Commission.
