Peachtree Corners has launched four separate grant programs to assist businesses and nonprofits whose operations have been dramatically impacted by COVID-19.
The city voted in August to allocate an anticipated $16.4 million from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to qualified small businesses and nonprofits suffering economic hardships due to the pandemic. The city hopes these grants help businesses remain open and operating and residents employed and to aid nonprofits serving the community with operational funding.
“Because the funding comes from the federal government, there are restrictions on how the funds may be allocated,” said Cory Salley, the city’s Finance Director. Details and an instructional video on how to apply is available on the city’s website.
The business operating grant offers small business funding to use for general operating expenses. The nonprofit operating grant provides nonprofits serving Peachtree Corners’ residents with operational funding. The third application will help nonprofits providing emergency assistance to Peachtree Corners’ residents who have been hit the hardest by the pandemic. The capital expense fund provides money to beautify a small business or nonprofit’s facility’s exterior and or renovate the facility to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The grant application process launched Sept. 20 ends at 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. Questions: email@example.com.
