PPE reimbursement grant program reinstated

Posted: Friday, October 9, 2020

COVID-19 has altered the work environment for almost every business in our county. Huntington County wants to help keep our local businesses safe by reimbursing the cost of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). If you have a small business, this reimbursement grant can help you outfit your employees with the PPE needed to do their jobs safely, while helping you keep your facility “COVID clean.”

This grant reimburses a business for its PPE purchased on or after March 1, 2020, through October 31, 2020. Up to $2,000 of PPE can be reimbursed per business. Applications will be accepted from October 15 through October 31.

This is the second opportunity for small businesses in Huntington County to apply for this grant program. The grant is not limited to unincorporated areas of the county – all small businesses in Huntington County’s towns and cities are invited to apply. The grant can be used by non-profits, freelance workers and any other business with one to 20 employees. PPE that is eligible for reimbursement includes both Standard PPE and Disinfecting PPE. Standard PPE includes masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, hand wipes and similar items. Disinfecting PPE includes specific items such as sanitizing wipes, disinfecting spray and multi-surface cleaners.

Interested businesses can apply for the PPE reimbursement grant using the application form on Huntington County’s website by clicking here.
