Rockingham County Small Business Grant Program
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor of Virginia issued Executive Order 53 which, among other things, forced the closure of non-essential businesses in Rockingham County. The forced closure has severely impacted various retail, hospitality, entertainment, employment and administrative services, and travel-related businesses.
The County received funding from the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The U.S. Department of Treasury guidance allows the CARES Act funds to be used for costs and expenses incurred because of the COVID-19 public health emergency, specifically mentioning the making of grants to small businesses.
