The City of Lynchburg CARES Nonprofit Recovery Grant Program is a fund to offer financial assistance to organizations whose operations were either closed or restricted by the Commonwealth of Virginia in response to the novel coronavirus. The program is administered by the Office of Economic Development & Tourism and the Economic Development Authority (EDA) of the City of Lynchburg through an allocation of the City of Lynchburg Coronavirus Relief Funds provided through the federal CARES Act.
Applicants will be required to demonstrate and certify that they are eligible, that they were operational as of March 1, 2020, and that they are suffering negative business impacts from COVID-19.
Application Deadline: Friday, October 30, 2020
If you have received any other federal CARES support you are eligible for funding from the City of Lynchburg. For example, businesses that received federal support from the Payroll Protection Program or Economic Injury Disaster Loan Emergency Advance must certify that they will use grant funds for other uses.
Please download and complete the W9 form and Financial Statement of Impact under the “Required Documentation” tab on this page, prior to beginning your application.
