The COVID-19 Economic Disaster Relief (CEDR) Grant Program has awarded all available funds and is currently closed. Applications are no longer being accepted at this time.

The CEDR Grant program was established to serve as an initial financial lifeline to local businesses to help keep people employed, thereby supporting the continuity of operations as businesses and their employees weather the economic hardships during the first critical days and weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The staff from the Office of Economic Vitality (OEV) will contact each applicant to inform them of the status of their application. To help us process the applications as quickly as possible, we respectfully request you do not contact us with questions about specific applications. If additional and/or updated information is required, a member from our grant committee will contact you.

We are working hard to respond to each application as quickly as possible in our effort to support the business community and appreciate your understanding.
