Purpose: The City of Mason wants to ensure that any remaining funds after the close of round two of the Recovery Programs (Service Agreements/Forgivable Loan) are distributed to support small businesses with a strong emphasis on those businesses most directly impacted by additional COVID-19 restrictions and mandates.
Program: This program will distribute any remaining funds to the entire group of original and new successful applicants with a strong emphasis on those businesses most directly impacted by additional shutdown orders or restrictions on businesses the State may announce. The level of funding is contingent on available funds after fulfilling the second round of allocation to qualified first-time applicants. Further, funding determination amounts (if available) will be based on the volume of applications received. Previously award participants for the Forgivable Loan and/or Service agreement are eligible to apply as well as first-time applicants.
Application: The online application for the Supplemental Distribution Opportunity will be open now through December 16 and is available here. For new applicants, please use the application for either the Forgivable Loan and/or Service Agreement to apply for this program.
Minimum Eligibility Requirements:
- The business shall have qualified for a Forgivable Loan and/or Service Agreement.
- Business shall have negative impact as a result of recent COVID-19 restrictions or mandates.
