The City of Coeur d’Alene announces that it has reserved $340,000 in CARES Act funding for Small Business Relief Grants. The grant program is available to businesses and organizations (including non-profits and licensed in-home childcare providers) registered with the State of Idaho and located within the City of Coeur d’Alene jurisdictional boundaries.
In the first round of the grant allocation, eligible expenses for businesses will be focused on keeping kids healthy and making Coeur d’Alene safer for residents and visitors. Examples of eligible uses of Small Business Relief Fund grants include COVID-19 related expenditures to purchase Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), furniture, fixtures, and equipment necessary to continue business operations in light of the coronavirus, and youth services (daycare/childcare for newborns to school-ages kids and health-related activities for youth to continue or expand operations in light of the coronavirus).
