Marysville offers another round of CARES Act grants

Funds are available for those who need help paying for housing or business expenses amid COVID-19.

MARYSVILLE — The city is offering another round of CARES Act grants. Applicants can request up to $1,500 for housing or $10,000 for business expenses.

Grants are first-come, first-served, with $100,000 available for housing and $300,000 for businesses.

“As the effects of this pandemic continue, so many people are struggling financially,” Mayor Jon Nehring said in a news release. “We are grateful to be able to offer this financial assistance to Marysville residents and businesses trying to stay afloat.”

For housing relief grants, residents must live in the city; be behind on rent or mortgage payments; have been up-to-date on payments for six months prior to March 1; and have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.

For business relief grants, businesses must be in the city; have been in operation since or before Jan. 1; have a current Marysville business license; employ under 50 full-time employees or the equivalent, including the owner; and have experienced interruptions, loss of sales, closure or curtailed operations, or other negative financial impacts from restrictions imposed to address COVID-19.
