City of Dover offers local business assistance program for coronavirus impacts

DOVER — The City of Dover announces a new round of “Dover CARES” grant funding targeted to microenterprise and small businesses. The grants are made possible by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

The grants are intended to provide working capital to assist small local businesses in avoiding job loss caused by the coronavirus. The program offers up to $3,000 in assistance to qualifying businesses operating within Dover.

Funds from Dover CARES may either be used in two ways: To reimburse incurred business expenses to plan, prepare and respond to the coronavirus; or offset a business disruption that occurred because of the coronavirus.

There are two types of Dover CARES available: Microenterprise Business Assistance Grant and Small Business Assistance Grant.
