Steele County recognizes the hardships and impact COVID-19 has had on business and local nonprofits within the community.
In an effort to support and help them sustain operations during this difficult time,
the County set aside:
- $672,000 (combined total) for the County CARES Business Grant Program to help all businesses in Steele County, whether located in the unincorporated areas of the County or supporting the four City CARES Programs.
- $450,000 towards the Steele County CARES Nonprofit Relief Grant Program to help nonprofits throughout all of Steele County.
From these funds, Steele County is providing grants up to $10,000 to assist eligible businesses/organizations adversely affected by the pandemic that have not already received funding from a Steele County City and/or a Township CARES Act Fund of $10,000 or more.

Grant funds will be awarded to businesses/organizations as a first come, first serve basis. The program is subject to funding availability from the County. The County retains the authority and discretion to approve or deny an application, and reserves the right to subsequently add further priorities, change eligibility criteria, or discontinue the program in response to changing circumstances.
