The Clark County Commission approved creating three grant programs to help small businesses impacted by the shutdown put in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Under the programs, small businesses can apply for grants of up to $10,000 to pay for rent, utilities, payroll or business improvements like plexiglass barriers and extra hand washing facilities.
There are different requirements for each of the three grants but all businesses must be based in Clark County, have a local business license and have 20 or fewer employees.
Applications for the Small Business Stabilization Grant will soon be available on the county's website soon. Applications for the other two grants will be available by the end of the month.
