(BLOOMINGTON) – COVID 19 funding applications are now open for Bloomington and Monroe County.
The purpose of the Rapid Response Fund is to assist Bloomington-based businesses and nonprofits that serve Bloomington with short term funding support during the COVID-19 Emergency.
The fund is intended to assist small local businesses and nonprofits that are low on capital to retain employees and otherwise maintain economic viability. Visit bloomington.in.gov/business to find the application.
Monroe County is accepting applications from locally-owned businesses located outside the City of Bloomington that need support in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The county has allocated $200,000 from its share of Food & Beverage Tax revenues for this purpose.
The expenditure of Food and Beverage tax dollars can only be made to support tourism.
