Will County businesses have until December 30th to apply for the Economic Development grants through Will County from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. Businesses and non-profits are eligible from a pool of $10 million.

Will County is committed to supporting the response to and recovery from COVID-19. The County, using the allocation of over $134 million from the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF), a part of the American Rescue Plan, has dedicated $10 million to both support programs addressing negative economic impacts of the pandemic (including housing, financial services, and education programs) and to provide direct aid to industries impacted by the pandemic (including businesses and non-profits).

December 30 is the deadline to apply.

Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s Executive Vice President Mike Paone interviewed Anna Sitton on useful information on where to apply, how to apply, guidelines and more. The Chamber’s Legislative Coffee series is presented by CITGO.
