Micro-Enterprise Local Business Emergency Fund

The COVID-19 Pandemic has hindered our local businesses’ ability to resolve unexpected emergencies, that we know happen regardless of the current situation. We’re here to offer some small financial relief. From May 1st through November 30th, businesses affected from the economic crisis that has affected all of us, are encouraged to apply for a one-time grant of up to $1000 for emergency repairs and expenditures. This contingency fund will be administered on a first-come, first-serve basis, until funds are depleted. A committee will designate funding and receipts, with contacts must be provided.

  • Must be a business in the Lovington MainStreet District or be a Lovington Chamber of Commerce Member.
  • Must be considered a micro-enterprise, local small business with no more than 10 employees.
