COVID-19 relief grants available for Front Royal businesses
Businesses in the Town of Front Royal that have experienced economic hardship from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic can apply for relief grants starting Monday.
Grant funds should be used to pay outstanding utility bills with the town in order to continue to receive essential services; the remaining grant funds may be used to pay for other expenses associated with business interruption.
The grants will be administered by the Front Royal-Warren County Chamber of Commerce. Businesses may receive grant funding between $2,500 and $20,000, depending on their 2019 gross receipts.
“The Town Council has been anxious to help local businesses and was prepared in April to use reserve funds,” said Interim Town Manager Matt Tederick in a news release. “Fortunately, the town has received over one million dollars in CARES Act funds to help our local small businesses and boost our economy. I am looking forward to checks being cut in a few weeks.”
The chamber will work in conjunction with the town and the Front Royal CARES Committee to allocate funds.
Applications open Monday, July 27 at 9 a.m. and close Monday, Aug. 10 at 5 p.m.
