Henry County Small Business Restart Program and Non-Profit Assistance Programs
In response to the economic impact of COVID-19, Henry County, Georgia, has received approximately $8.5 million from the U.S. Department of Treasury. On Tuesday, August 11, 2020 the Board of Commissioners voted to accept these funds, and on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 the Board of Commissioners voted to allocate a portion of these funds to assist small businesses and residents impacted by COVID-19.
Henry County Government will be accepting, reviewing and evaluating submitted applications from small business and non-profit agencies located in the county. Non-profit applicants must provide services to Henry County residents. This includes unincorporated Henry County and the Cities of Hampton, Locust Grove, McDonough and Stockbridge.
The program is funded through the Department of Treasury’s Coronavirus Relief Fund, and are therefore subject to the restrictions outlines in the Guidance and set forth in section 601(d) of the Social Security Act, as added by section 5001 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), even if not explicitly listed.
To ensure no duplication of funding from the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) the applicant may not be the recipient of CARES funding from any other agency such as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
Applicants will be deemed ineligible if any owner/operator/board member is presently suspended, debarred, proposed for debarment, declared ineligible, voluntarily excluded from participation by any federal department or agency, or presently involved in any bankruptcy.
