Clay County Accepting Applications From Businesses and Non-Profits For Aid
Clay Co., Kan. — Clay County is accepting applications for aid to businesses and non-profits who have experienced financial setbacks due to the COVID 19 pandemic. These will be grants to existing businesses and non-profits who are solely based in Clay County and have experienced adversity due to the pandemic. Our goal is to get aid to those businesses who have either been unable to receive other grants such as PPP, CDBG-CV, or other substantial grants or who have received very small amounts from these grant programs.
Applications are being accepted and must be postmarked by October 10, 2020, or may be delivered to the Clay County Clerk’s Office in the courthouse prior to that date. The mailing address is:
Clay County Board of County Commissioners
712 5th Street Suite 102
Clay Center, KS. 67432
There are 2 categories of grants available. One is an aid for small businesses and the other is an aid for non-profits. Funding for these grants is limited so an application does not guarantee an award.
It is anticipated grants will be awarded in Mid to Late October. Proceeds from the grant must be spent by the recipient by December 1, 2020, at which time the unspent portion must be returned to Clay County.
Business grants are open to the following types of businesses:
Food Service – restaurants, diners, etc.
Retail – hardware, gift, apparel, jewelry, appliance, pharmacies, etc.
Wellness/grooming – hair/nail salons, massage therapy, etc.
Repair Service – home repair, appliance repair, vehicle repair, etc.
Hospitality – motel, hotel, lodging, etc.
Professional Services – accountants, legal, abstracting, real estate, etc.
