Anoka County was allocated just under $7 million for grants as part of a state aid relief package. This funding is now available to qualifying businesses and nonprofits impacted by COVID-19.
Businesses or nonprofits applying for this funding must meet several criteria, including having a physical location in Anoka County, having incurred a financial hardship due to COVID-19, and they must be in good standing with the Minnesota Secretary of State.
Grant amounts range from $10,000 to $45,000 depending on employment and type of organization. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come basis, with all applications being processed by March 15, 2021. Priority will be given to applicants that were impacted by Executive Order 20-99 and applicants that did not receive a CARES Act grant. Anoka County will contact businesses or nonprofits with any questions on their applications or to notify them of approval.
