Round Two of the Frederick County, Virginia COVID-19 Business/Non-Profit Grant Program will open on Friday, October 23, at 8 am. Grants of $5,000, $7,500, or $10,000 will be awarded to Frederick County businesses and non-profits adversely affected by the pandemic, with 2019 annual gross revenues of at least $30,000 but less than $3 million. Round Two eligibility is expanded to include non-profits located outside of Frederick County. Grant amounts for non-profits located outside of Frederick County will be awarded on a sliding scale based on percentage of Frederick County residents served and 2019 revenues. For example, a non-profit with $500,000 in gross revenues for 2019 that can document 50% of their service goes to Frederick County residents, could qualify for a grant of $5,000. Businesses and non-profits awarded in Round One are ineligible for award in Round Two.
Seventy (70) Frederick County businesses and non-profits were awarded in Round One, totaling $662,500. A list of businesses receiving awards can be viewed here.
