The Charlotte CARES Business Recovery Program will stop accepting applications on Thursday. Businesses can be granted up to $30,000 based on the number of employees they have. This includes those running vacation rentals and any business with a heavy economic impact.

Per the Charlotte CARES for Business – Recovery Grant Program – Outline, Charlotte County said, “This year Charlotte County was assigned $32.9 million from the federal CARES Act approved by Congress. 20% of those funds, $6,580,000, will be given to qualified Charlotte County businesses by electronic application through the Recovery Grant Program.  The Charlotte County Board of County Commissioners have dedicated $1,645,000 to be allocated in four separate stages by business group.”

Individuals and families can also still apply here.

The remainder of the funds is currently unallocated.
