COVID-19 Small Business Relief Grants Round 2 Re-Opened

COVID-19 Small Business Relief Grants Round 2 Re-Opened

The Town of North Andover is reopening its second round of COVID-19 Small Business Relief Grants, which provides needed financial support to small businesses hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The source of funding for this grant program is the Town’s Columbia Gas Municipal Discretionary Fund; no taxpayer funds are being used.
In addition to restaurants and personal services businesses, auto/repair service and retail businesses are now eligible to apply for the grant.  Emphasis will still be placed on funding restaurants and personal services businesses.
If your business applied for a grant and you have not yet heard back from the Town, you do not need to reapply.  Your application will be reconsidered.  Note that grant funding is limited and the Town may not be able to fund all eligible businesses that apply.
Deadline:  Applications will be accepted until noon on Friday, February 26, 2021. This deadline may be extended at the discretion of the Town if the grant funds have not been exhausted.  Awards are expected to be announced by early March.
