On top of nearly $200K already distributed, city officials received $35,000 from state to help serve businesses and registered nonprofit organizations.

Small businesses and nonprofit organizations disrupted by COVID-19 are applying for a second round of grant assistance from Oregon City.

Oregon City officials received $35,000 in additional funding from the state to help serve registered nonprofit organizations as well as the for-profit businesses impacted by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. City officials applied for these dollars from the state of Oregon's general fund and Oregon Lottery funds administered through the Oregon Business Development Department.

Businesses that received grant funding previously from Oregon City, or from federal programs for emergency pandemic funding, are not eligible for Round 2 of funding from the city.

Oregon City commissioners in April approved a $200,000 small-business debt-relief grant program that provided up to $3,000 in grant funding to each eligible business from the city's general fund. Oregon City officials issued grants to 78 businesses, but found that 35 of the total 113 applicants were ineligible for the program. 27% of applicants didn't use profit and loss statements, and 34% of business applicants were not using a W-9 Form.

$16,176.51 leftover from the original $200,000 small-business debt-relief grant program will be used with an additional $3,823.49 from the city's general fund for a Community Showcase program to help sustain restaurants and other tourism draws in Oregon City. Residents will win $20,000 in gift certificates for local businesses on the heels of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications to the latest Oregon City debt-relief program are available at orcity.seamlessdocs.com/f/OCBizDebtRelief2.
