Isle of Wight County and the Towns of Windsor and Smithfield have expanded the COVID-19 Small Business Grant Program, originally launched in June, to include a “Round 2” funding program aimed at increasing fiscal assistance to businesses impacted by COVID-19 recover and reopen. Round 2 will also draw on a portion of CARES Act funding allocated to the three jurisdictions.

The Round 2 grant is one-time financial assistance for eligible, for-profit small businesses (fewer than 50 employees) to reimburse the costs of business interruption related directly or indirectly to certain sections of Governor Northam’s Executive Order 53 and/or Executive Order 55, also known as the “Temporary Stay-At-Home Order.”

Round 2 grants of up to $4,000 per business are available for new applicants to the program. Businesses that received up to $2,000 in the first round of the program were eligible to receive up to an additional $2,000 and have been notified by the Department of Economic Development on how to request this funding.

There is a limited amount of funding for this program. Grant applications will be processed and funded on a first-come, first-served basis upon submission of a complete application and all supporting documentation.

***The application below is for new applicants only.  If you received funding in Round 1 of the grant, please do not use this form to submit again.***
