City launches Marysville CARES Small Business grant program


Up to $10K grants awarded for smallest businesses; apply by May 18

Marysville small businesses with five or fewer employees, and whose owners meet low-income requirements, are invited to apply Marysville CARES grants of up to $10,000 each to be awarded by the City of Marysville. Applications open Monday, May 4, and the deadline to apply is 4 p.m. Monday, May 18. 

“We have worked diligently over the past couple of weeks with the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development and others to find a way to push this grant money out to private sector small businesses within Marysville who are struggling to survive this COVID-19 shutdown,” said Mayor Jon Nehring. “I am pleased that we have found a way to do so while complying with federal restrictions.”

The City will award up to a total of $226,637 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds authorized by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

The business owner must meet federal low-income eligibility guidelines. For example, a family of four with an annual household income of $88,250 or less would qualify. 

Use of funds must be consistent with the city’s 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and PY2019 Annual Action Plan as amended.
