On behalf of our many partners in both public and private sectors, thank you for your strong support of our efforts over the past eight weeks. We’ve deployed much needed capital to hundreds of small businesses throughout all areas of Wicomico County and reached a wide range of economic sectors.
We especially thank our small business community. Throughout our program, we’ve heard your stories, witnessed neighbors helping neighbors and even competitors helping competitors. Your resilience, spirit, and positivity during uncertain and challenging times is remarkable and creates that fabric of community which makes our County so special.
The SWED CV-19 Relief Grant Fund (The Fund) is capitalized through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) and offers working capital grants based on three months operating expenses, up to $10,000 to assist Wicomico small businesses with disrupted operations due to Coronavirus-19.
