Small Business and Non-Profit Grant Assistance Program (Grant Period Closed)

The Apache Junction City Council, on July 14, 2020, approved Resolution 20-23 establishing the Small Business and Non-Profit Grant Assistance Program. The program was approved during a special meeting to address the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the community and its economy.

“We have seen how the virus outbreak has hurt our mom-and-pop businesses and non-profits in the city,” said Mayor Jeff Serdy. “This program is meant to try and help them all, which in turn helps the entire community.”

Applications were accepted between July 21 and August 25, 2020.  Grants were awarded to 73 eligible small businesses that totaled $507,846.21 and to 11 non-profits for $69,722.36.

Under the program, businesses and non-profits were eligible to apply for up to $10,000.00 (exclusions and requirements apply) to cover rent, utilities, personal protective equipment (PPE) and other required modifications due to mandates related to the virus.

The grant is now closed.
