The County of Volusia (“County” or “Volusia County”) is allocating up to $10 million in emergency relief to support local businesses with a commercial presence within the County who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds are available as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act federal stimulus package. As a part of that relief, the County is offering emergency financial support through the Relaunch Volusia: Small Business Reopening Grant Program (“Reopening Grant Program”) on a first come first serve basis. Qualifying businesses may be eligible to receive a one-time Reopening Grant Program grant (“Grant”) of $3,000 for businesses that have 25 employees or less or $5,000 for businesses that have between 26 and 50 employees to help them recover from the negative financial consequences resulting from the COVID19 pandemic and relaunch their Volusia County business.
