Lebanon County has now received a portion of funding from the federal CARES Act which was created to assist individuals and businesses alike during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. This funding that was received is designated to businesses in order to support their economic recovery. The County Commissioners have decided on three categories of businesses that the grants will best serve during these challenging times which are Non-Profit Businesses, Tourism/Hospitality Industry, and Small Businesses ( less than 100 employees). They will review applications received by these types of businesses and determine who will be awarded grants based on need.
In order to receive a grant you must apply through the website www.lebanoncountycares.com. The first application period opened September 1st, 2020 and will close at 4 pm on September 15th, 2020 and the grants will be awarded on September 30th, 2020. There will be a second application session available as well, for any funds not distributed during the first phase, that begins October 15th, 2020 and ends October 30th, 2020. The second round of grants will be distributed November 15th, 2020 as all grant money needs to be distributed by the end of the year.
