Small business grants are available for area businesses through the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce and the Community Foundation of Grundy County. The two groups have teamed up to provide $1,000 grants to businesses impacted by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

In order to be eligible an applicant needs to be a for-profit, non-home based business based in Grundy County or be a member of the Grundy County Chamber or the Channahon/Minooka Chamber and have less than 20 employees. Applicants are open online at the Grundy County Chamber and Community Foundation website.

Once an application is received a panel put together by the two organizations will distribute the grants. Businesses can then expect to hear back within a few weeks.
