Middlesex EDA Micro-Grant Coronavirus Aid

June 29, 2020

In response to the recent economic impacts created by the COVID-19 pandemic the Middlesex County EDA is making $100,000 available for small business assistance grants. Funds utilized for the program are being drawn from reserve funds generated by fees charged on past Industrial Revenue Bonds issued by the EDA. No local tax dollars are involved.  The Micro-Grant program will reimburse direct costs incurred by eligible Middlesex County small businesses due to business interruption caused by required closures or reduced hours of operation necessitated by the COVID-19 public health emergency. The program requires that businesses complete an application and provide appropriate materials for review by the Middlesex County Economic Development Authority.

Applications may be submitted immediately, will be reviewed by EDA/County staff and the grant award will be made upon approval by the Middlesex Economic Development Authority. Applications will be approved until funds are exhausted.  Key points of the program can be found here
