Revitalizing Irondequoit’s Small business Economy
The COVID-19 health crisis has created an unprecedented burden on businesses located in the Town of Irondequoit, with the abrupt closing of the nation’s economy. The Town of Irondequoit has created a small business grant program intended to provide working capital for Irondequoit small businesses which have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 health crisis. The “Revitalizing Irondequoit’s Small business Economy” or RISE program will use supplemental funds to the Town’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) made available from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
Funding is available in two categories for businesses impacted in different ways:
RISE Phase I – Please note that Phase I is now closed.
DEADLINE: December 31, 2020
RISE Phase II – Financial assistance for independent and locally owned businesses that are located in Irondequoit and are forced to close or modify operations as a result of an “Orange Zone” or “Red Zone” designation under the New York State Cluster Action Initiative.
DEADLINE: March 31, 2021
RISE Phase III - Town Property Tax Relief for locally owned businesses that have experienced an economic loss due to COVID-19 and/or Orange Zone Restrictions.
