Fairview offers COVID-19 assistance
The city of Fairview is offering Small Business Assistance Grants to provide financial support to businesses with 10 or fewer employees that have been adversely affected by economic conditions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program — a collaboration between Business Oregon and the city of Fairview — will provide a total of $30,000 in grants, with a minimum award of $2,500. Applications are available online at www.fairvieworegon.gov/SBAG and will be accepted beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, July 1. The grant application window will close once all available funds have been awarded, or by 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 8.
Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.
"Our small business community plays a vital role in Fairview and we are excited to offer these grants just as many businesses are planning to re-open," said Mayor Brian Cooper.
Applications are encouraged from all types of businesses — including nonprofits, sole proprietors, minority-owned, woman-owned, and veteran-owned businesses. Fairview has committed to ensuring a fair and equitable distribution of grants.
