Kane County has just launched "Round Two" of their Business Grant Program. They are now accepting grant applications from local businesses in need of financial assistance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Kane County Board appropriated $5 million for this initiative from its Coronavirus Relief Fund. Eligible businesses may apply for up to $25,000 to cover certain expenses from 3/1/2020 to 12/30/2020. (Businesses that applied under Round One are welcome to apply under Round Two.) More information, including a link to their web-based application portal, is posted on the county’s Coronavirus Relief Fund page. They have established a dedicated telephone number and email address for this important program and staff are ready to field inquiries.
