The Pope County Board of Commissioners has approved a program to distribute hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant funding to Pope County businesses and non-profit entities. This funding is intended to reimburse local businesses and non-profits for expenses attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic and response.
Pope County businesses and non-profits with qualifying expenses are strongly encouraged to visit the Pope County website at www.co.pope.mn.us/cares to review the grant program criteria and complete an application for grant funding. Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2020.
In the initial application period, grants up to $10,000 per recipient will be considered, with an additional $5,000 in funding potentially available per recipient based on documented, qualifying needs and on funding availability at the discretion of the County.
