Qualifying Sherburne County businesses can receive up to $10,000 in grant money to offset COVID-19 related losses under a plan approved Tuesday by the Board of Commissioners.
The county is receiving approximately $1.87 million from the state of Minnesota as part of a COVID-19 relief fund. The plan approved Tuesday by commissioners is a two-tier plan.
Businesses that receive direct aid from the state are eligible to receive up to $5,000 from the county.
Businesses that do not receive direct aid from the state are eligible to receive up to $10,000 from the county.
