July 1, 2020 | Other

The New Kent County Economic Development Authority has established a grant program for businesses that are physically located in the County to provide aid to address financial issues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and state government ordered shutdown of non-essential businesses and modifications to all other businesses.

Applications opened today, July 1, 2020, and grants will be awarded to qualified applicants by lottery at 9 a.m. on Friday, July 24, 2020 at the New Kent Visitors and Commerce Center. The drawing will also be live streamed on Facebook.

There will be a maximum of 40 grants with a minimum amount of $2,500 per grant. Applicants will be notified by email and will be mailed a notification letter whether or not the business is receiving an award. Applicants do not need to be present for the drawing on July 24, 2020.

Note: Businesses that received PPP loans or EIDL funding are not eligible for the program.
