Citrus County Small Business Grants Funding Available 

 

Citrus County Board of County Commissioners approved the Citrus County Small Business Grant Programs with $200,000 in funding at their regular meeting Tuesday, January 5, 2021. 

 

There will be two programs available to small businesses with less than 35 employees:

 

·       The Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Micro Grant will have a minimum award of $250 up to a maximum award of $2,500.

 

·       The Retrofit/Adaptation Grant will have a maximum award of $10,000 per business. 

 

A small business may be eligible for both grants.

 

These grants are offered on a reimbursement basis and will require the business to submit an application online through SurveyMonkey Apply on the Citrusbocc.com website: 

https://www.citrusbocc.com/smallbusinessgrant.

 

Applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted. Grants are strictly limited to businesses located physically within Citrus County, with a Business Tax Receipt (BTR). The business is expected to be fully operational after local and state emergency guidelines are rolled back. 

 

The Small Business Grants funding is a critical part of Citrus County’s commitment to keep our business community healthy and the local economy moving forward. For more information phone, 352-527-5207.
