Mayor Craig A. Moe is informing local business owners that the Federal programs and initiatives in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, just passed by Congress, are intended to assist business owners with whatever needs they have right now.

When implemented, there will be many new resources available for small businesses, as well as certain nonprofits and other employers.

This guide provides information about the major programs and initiatives that will soon be available from the Small Business Administration (SBA) to address these needs, as well as some additional tax provisions that are outside the scope of SBA.

The Small Business Owner’s Guide to the CARES Act - - is a very easy guide for business owners and includes a lot of new financial resources for businesses, including an Emergency Economic Injury Grant up to $10,000.

While the City’s Office of Emergency Management and City Officials are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic to keep residents and businesses safe, Mayor Moe asks you to please stay at home, stay safe, stay calm and to please continue to support local  businesses in any way you safely can, like buying online.
