County Council has allocated $3 Million in emergency financial support to help home-based businesses.

 

Based on the allotted funds, 2,000 grants can be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis for home-based businesses that meet eligibility criteria. The one-time grant will be for $1500. 

 

“A lot of work went into this – a lot of good thought on how we would do that,” County Manager George Recktenwald told the County Council on Tuesday.

 

The qualifications for the home-based business grant are:

 

  • Must be based out of Volusia County

  • 50 or fewer employees

  • Minimum of $6,000 in gross income (or gross receipts) on the most recent tax return

 

Businesses also must certify that they’ve suffered at least $1,500 in financial impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For those that receive a grant, the money can be used to offset the negative financial impact they experienced and to help with the cost of reopening or relaunching their business.

 

Owners of home-based businesses in Volusia County that have or are in the process of receiving a COVID-19 rent or mortgage assistance grant from the county don’t qualify for the home-based business grant program. 

 

The grant application window will open at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 22. The application and along with a complete list of the eligibility criteria will be posted online here:
