CLATSOP COUNTY — Small businesses and nonprofits in Clatsop County that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 can apply for a new state grant program.

Grants of $5,000 and more are now available to small businesses that have received less than $100,000 in federal relief from programs like the Paycheck Protection Program and EIDL Advance. To be eligible, businesses must have 25 employees or fewer, and either have been ordered by the state to shut down or have had a 25% decrease in gross revenue in a given month between March and August, compared to the same month last year. 

The grant application is available through the Clatsop Economic Development Resources website, until 5 p.m. Oct. 16.

Prior state grant recipients can fill out a separate short-form application at Prior recipients may be randomly selected to receive a grant matching their previous grant amount.
