Cobb County Government is partnering with SelectCobb to offer the county’s small businesses a funding opportunity to help mitigate financial hardships created by the coronavirus pandemic. The SelectCobb Small Business Relief Grants will provide grants up to a maximum of $40,000 for small businesses based in Cobb County to use on personnel, rent, utilities, and acquiring PPE to ensure the safety of their employees.

Applications are currently open and will close on June 26 at 5 p.m. A full list of eligibility requirements and more information about the application process is available at www.selectcobb.com/grants. Businesses are not required to be a member of the Cobb Chamber to apply or receive funding as part of the SelectCobb Small Business Relief Grant Program. No preferential consideration will be given for Cobb Chamber members.

Once applications are closed, an independent committee of business representatives will review each eligible application and decide which companies will receive grant funds. The committee will include a diverse group of industries, including banking, certified public accountants, legal, small business and county government. The committee will review applications per Commission District so that all areas are equally represented in the number of companies being assisted. Once determinations are made, a public announcement of grants funds will be made by representatives of the selection committee, SelectCobb, Cobb Chamber, and Cobb County Government.

Additional questions or requests for more information can be sent to the SelectCobb team at [email protected] or 770-859-2364.
