The State of Oregon’s COVID-19 Emergency Business Grant Program is now open for an additional round of funding, offering as much as $50,000 to qualifying businesses and 501©(3) organizations that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. The application process will be open through Nov. 15, or until the $17.5 million in grant funding is fully allocated.

Grants are available to Oregon-based businesses with 25 or fewer employees, including organizations that previously received up to $100,000 in CARES Act funding. Funding will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applicants are being asked to fill out one of two forms:

• Supplemental Grant Application for previous State of Oregon COVID-19 Emergency Business Grant recipients; or

• Emergency Business Grant Application for first-time program applicants.

Central Willamette Credit Union is administering this round of grants, and SELCO Community Credit Union is collaborating to help improve awareness of the program.
