Mayor Craig A. Moe has announced the City of Laurel is still accepting applications for the Main Street Business Relocation Grant Program.  This program will allow either the property owner or the business itself to apply for relocation assistance. Mayor Moe stated there is $30,000 allocated to this program, which will provide assistance to at least six businesses. 
 
Mayor Moe noted that there may be businesses dislocated because of planned or anticipated development activities.  Mayor Moe encourages these businesses to investigate this grant opportunity to determine how it may work for them.  For grant purposes, the Main Street area is described as Main Street from First Street to Seventh Street, and includes Main Street’s side streets from U. S. Route 1 North to Fourth Street, north to the Patuxent River, and Route 1 north from Montgomery Street to the Patuxent River. 
 
Qualifying businesses shall be able to apply for a grant up to $5,000 to assist with moving expenses, interior remodeling, on-site signage, or moving incidentals.  Mayor Moe stated that information about the Main Street Business Relocation Grant Program, including detailed grant information and grant application, is available on-line at www.laurel.md.us.  Business owners interested in learning more about this program may call the Department of Community Planning and Business Services at 301-725-5300 Ext. 2313.
 
Applications will be reviewed as submitted.  The program will continue as long as funding is provided.
