We’re happy to announce that Kane County is now accepting grant applications from local businesses in need of financial assistance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Today we are launching “Round Two” of the county’s Business Grant Program. The Kane County Board appropriated $5 million for this initiative from its Coronavirus Relief Fund. Eligible businesses may apply for up to $25,000 to cover certain expenses from 3/1/2020 to 12/30/2020. (Businesses that applied under Round One are welcome to apply under Round Two.) More information, including a link to our web-based application portal, is posted on the county’s Coronavirus Relief Fund page. We’ve established a dedicated telephone number and email address for this important program and our staff are ready to field inquiries.

Finally, for businesses that would benefit from one-on-one assistance or might lack adequate technology to complete our on-line application, we are making computer and scanning technology available free of charge at our office in downtown Batavia. Please note we are making this service available by appointment only in order to ensure strict compliance with COVID-19 screening and distancing standards. Applicants will be able to bring their financial and expense documentation to our office where it can be digitally scanned for upload to our application portal.
