07/20/20 Borough's Grant Program Allows You to Apply Even if You've Received Other COVID-19 Related Financial Assistance

The Borough's CARES Act Relief Fund grant program allows small businesses and nonprofits to apply for a grant regardless if you've applied for other state or federal assistance programs as a result of COVID-19 economic impacts.

Just remember to keep separate accounting and backup documentation for each grant that you receive... don't use the same bag of receipts for the different grants that you may receive.

Federal funds cannot be used to pay for the exact same cost or activity already paid for from another source of funding. This is sometimes referred to as duplication of benefits (DOB) or “double-dipping.” Entities using multiple funding sources should be aware of the different authorities and program requirements for each funding source, being careful to avoid DOB in instances where they are paying for similar costs or activities from multiple sources. If you're a small business or nonprofit located in an unincorporated community, visit to learn about the borough's grant program or to submit an application. You may also call the Grants Division at 907-714-2153.
