To ensure the resiliency of local businesses and assist in job retention, the City of Pinellas Park established a Small Business Relief Fund to provide grants to eligible small businesses for working capital.
Applications are now being accepted, and city staff members are taking questions regarding the application process.
Financial assistance, in the form of grants (not loans), in the amount of$2,500 may be available. These grants will be awarded to eligible, qualified small businesses based on the availability of funds, program guidelines and the submission of all required information and supporting documentation.
Assistance for completing the application is available by contacting Amanda Conte with the Economic Development Team at 727-369-5619.
Hard copies of the application are available at the outside pickup box at the Technical Services Building and can be dropped off in the outside drop box. Hard copies will have a longer process period.
The funding for this program is limited, so applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis and will close once funds are depleted.
