Small businesses can receive up to $4,000 grant

Posted: Friday, August 28, 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 program can help you outfit your employees with the PPE needed to do their jobs safely.

An application for the Huntington County Small Business PPE Reimbursement Grant Program is attached here. This program is for all small businesses in Huntington County and its municipalities. The grant can be used by non-profits, freelance workers, and any other business with one to 20 employees in Huntington County. PPE that is eligible for reimbursement includes washable face masks, face mask filters, disposable face masks, face visors, hand sanitizer, hand wipes and gloves.

This grant reimburses a business for its PPE purchased on or after March 1, through October 31. Up to $2,000 of PPE can be reimbursed per application period, for a total of $4,000 per business.

The first application period is from August 15 to August 31. The second is from October 15 to October 31. The county will only accept applications sent during these two application periods.

Interested businesses can apply for the PPE reimbursement grant using the attached application form here. If there are any questions, please contact Huntington County’s grant program manager, Aliza Tourkow, at aliza.tourkow@huntington.in.us or (260) 999-8600.
