The County of Madera and the Madera County Economic Development Commission (MCEDC) will be closing the Small Business Pandemic Assistance Grant Program on Friday, November 13, 2020 at 5pm.
Applications received on or before that date will continue to be processed, but no applications will be accepted after the 13th. The County/MCEDC still has adequate funding available for small businesses and highly encourages businesses to apply before the deadline. The Federal Government is the source of the funding through the Coronavirus, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) and the guidelines of CARES require the funds to be spent by December 30th. “In order to ensure businesses receive their funding in a timely manner and have time to implement a spending plan, a deadline had to be established,” said Bobby Kahn, Executive Director of MCEDC.
If businesses are looking to apply for grant funding please visit mcedccountybusinessgrant.com or call the MCEDC office at (559) 675-7768 for assistance. For Spanish speaking businesses, assistance with translation and/or completing the grant application is available upon request.
