The Hamilton County Supervisors announced today a grant program to provide assistance to all brick and mortar retail businesses throughout Hamilton County. The intent is to provide support to businesses who incurred losses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The grants are to help business owners who did not qualify for previous Federal, State or local grants/loans.
The grants are for $1,000.00 per brick and mortar retail business. Funding will come from the former dollars in a Revolving Loan Fund that was previously managed by Hamilton County S.E.E.D. Inc. Grant applications will be made available to every communities' development contact. They contact Rick Young by email to

Applications are due by May 22, 2020
