07/07/20 Grant Opportunity for Small Businesses and Nonprofits in the Kenai Peninsula Borough

On June 16, 2020 The borough assembly approved 21 projects to be completed under the CARES Act, Coronavirus Relief Fund (“Relief Fund”). The borough will receive $37,458,449.47 in three payments: payment one of $21,325,715.47; payment two of $8,066,367; and payment three of $8,066,367. The borough received payment one last week. The 21 approved projects align with the federal requirements to use the funds for response to first and second order impacts resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic.

The first project to be completed is Grants to Small Businesses and Nonprofits. Please click INFORMATION for a printable version of the Relief Fund program guide. The guide is an informative document that is being distributed to assist small businesses and nonprofits that would like to apply for a grant under the borough’s program. Thanks to many that assisted in the development of this final document.

The application period is coming soon and will be open for two weeks, starting 8:00AM July 13, 2020 and closing 5:00PM July 24, 2020. The grant program, jurisdictional mapping tool and the 21 projects are hosted at This site will be updated as projects are completed or to see where these federal funds have been distributed throughout the borough.
