LAS VEGAS. NV (KXNT) - Beginning Tuesday, small businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic can apply for another round of financial assistance from Clark County.

Round two of the County’s Small Business Stabilization Grant will award local businesses up to $5,000 or $10,000 (the maximum depends upon how many employees the business has) for working capital, which includes general expenditures such as rent, utilities, inventory or payroll.

To qualify for this grant a business must be based in unincorporated Clark County, have a Clark County business license and have 20 or fewer employees. Business owners who unsuccessfully applied for these funds in June are encouraged to apply again as some eligibility provisions have changed. Also, businesses that received funding from a County grant earlier this year may apply for this second round of funding.

Additional information about the grant qualifications is available through the County Community and Economic Development website at Interested business owners are encouraged to review the information and prepare the required documents as soon as possible. The County will accept grant applications through September 29th.

Earlier this summer, the County distributed over $2 million to more than 500 businesses through small business grant programs aimed at assisting those hurt by the pandemic. Funding for the grant programs comes from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) CARES Act.
