On Tuesday, January 19th, 2021, the Todd County Board of Commissioners approved the Todd County Grant Relief Program for Small Businesses and Non-Profits. The Minnesota Legislature and Governor previously passed legislation authorizing funding to Minnesota counties to distribute relief grants to local businesses and non-profits impacted by an executive order related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The grant program is for small businesses and non-profits directly or indirectly affected by EO 20-99 or other executive orders causing closures by the COVID-19 pandemic. The application form and program guidelines have been posted on the Todd County website under the Business Resources page. The information can also be found on the Todd County Economic Development page.
The Todd County Grant Relief Program Guidelines explain the required documentation, eligibility criteria, and where to send the applications. Grants will be awarded to eligible businesses and non-profits who meet the criteria of the application and provide all supporting documentation. Grant amounts are listed on the application and are subject to
change based on need and availability of funds. Previous grant awards are required to be disclosed but do not disqualify an organization from applying. Grant funds awarded must be used for operational expenses incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The application period is from January 19th, 2021 through February 19th, 2021. Applications received will be reviewed and based on funding available, those found eligible will be approved on or before March 2nd, 2021.
Todd County, along with community partners, is providing information to assist businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. As with most information related to COVID-19, there are frequent changes and updates. Todd County will make every effort to keep the information and links updated. Please check with the MN Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) for additional resources.
Many of the hardware, grocery, and farm implement stores carry cleaning supplies and PPE.
