YORK Co., Va. - Are you a small business owner who was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic? This grant is for you.

York County, in partnership with the cities of Williamsburg and Poquoson, is launching the third and final phase of the COVID-19 Small Business Grant Program, which offers up to $15,000 for small businesses in the three participating localities to reimburse for rent or mortgage expenses during the coronavirus pandemic.

Businesses that had 20 or fewer full-time-equivalent employees at some point during the pandemic may qualify for the grant.

The program is funded by a Community Development Block Grant through the Virginia Department of Housing & Community Development, which York County and the Cities of Williamsburg and Poquoson secured together for a third time.

Funding in this round is extremely limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Incomplete applications will not be considered. The application form will be taken down from the website once the remaining available funds have been exhausted.
