Multnomah County Will Begin Taking Applications for Small Business Grants to Help Those Affected by Pandemic Restrictions
Hard-hit food and beverage operators that have now faced two mandated closures due to the pandemic are about to get a much-needed infusion of cash. Starting today, licensed restaurants and food carts in Multnomah County can apply for small business grants to help offset funds that were lost once restrictions like capacity caps and early closing times were put into place. The county is expected to receive $7.6 million from a $55 million CARES Act relief package administered statewide. Of that, approximately $5.3 million will go to licensed restaurants.
