Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing how many qualified applications will be received. We will do our very best to fund as many eligible applicants as possible, prioritizing those that have not received previous grant funds from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Nonprofit Recovery Initiative (NORI), Maryland’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Loan or Grant Program, SWED’s Business Commerce Assistance Fund or any other federal, state or local source whatsoever. We anticipate high demand for the grant program and to help in processing, documentation, funding and follow-up, we’ve enlisted a third-party accounting firm. Fully complete applications will help in processing and ultimately deploying funds to our business community. Incomplete applications cannot be accepted. Due to limited funds, the number of approved grants may be capped at one hundred fifty.
