The Renville County HRA/EDA announced Monday that it recently made grants to 111 Renville County businesses and non-profits, totaling $509,928.38.
These grant funds were sourced from the Federal CARES Act dollars provided to Renville County, and subsequently allocated by the Renville County Board of Commissioners to the HRA/EDA to provide these grants. The maximum grant to businesses was $7,500, and $5,000 for nonprofits. Grants awarded were based on eligible expenses incurred by applicants from March through August, 2020.
Janette Wertish, Chair of the Renville County HRA/EDA Board, said “We’re thankful to the Commissioners for these funds to grant to our county’s businesses and nonprofits. So many of our local organizations are struggling because of COVID-19. While it isn’t a cure all, these grants will help offset some of the impacts.”
