Community Development Block Grant – CARES (CDBG-CV) Direct Grant Program
Grafton Regional Development Corporation (GRDC) and three partner regional economic development corporations–Belknap, Coös, and Wentworth–have received more than $200,000 in CARES Act grant funding for small businesses that have been negatively impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Community Development Block Grant – CARES Act Funds Program (CDBG-CV), administered by the Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA), is for low- to moderate-income (LMI) microenterprises and start-ups to offset costs associated with preparing for, responding to, or recovering from COVID-19.
Qualifying LMI businesses may receive up to $2,500 in direct grant funding to be applied toward equipment costs, operational expenses, working capital, and minor construction or modification projects.
