Second round of financial assistance available to Warren County residents
There are two programs being funded by the County: a business and nonprofit grant program, and a grant program to help individuals pay their utility bills.
The second round of the business and nonprofit grant program will provide $1,000,096 in funds to eligible local small businesses and local non-profit organizations. Grants vary from $5,000 to $40,000, depending upon the size of the entity measured in accordance with its revenue. Businesses and nonprofit organizations with annual revenues of less than $6 million are eligible to apply.
The utility program will provide case by case assistance to individuals who have been affected by COVID-19 and who are having difficulty paying their electricity, water, sewer, gas or propane bills. There is a total of $77,542 available under the second round program.
Both programs require that the entity or individual must have been adversely affected by COVID-19. The business program only applies to entities and individuals who are located within Warren County but outside of the Town of Front Royal. Businesses that are not required to have a business license may apply to this second round. The nonprofit and utility programs apply to entities and individuals who are located within Warren County and includes the Town of Front Royal.
