The City of Fircrest is excited to announce the COVID-19 related Business and Tenant Assistance Program. At the July 28th City Council meeting, the City Council approved Resolution No. 1663 establishing this program. The purpose of the Business Assistance part of the program is to assist small businesses located within the City of Fircrest. The City of Fircrest is committing up to $120,000 in CARES Act Grant Funds to provide financial support to businesses impacted by COVID-19 restrictions. Rental Assistance is being offered to residential tenants in the City of Fircrest that have experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19.
This program has been put together in order to get as much assistance out to the community as possible within the confines of the City’s CARES Act Grant contract with the Department of Commerce. In order to meet the timeline required by the Department of Commerce, applications will be due to City Hall by 5 pm on Monday, August 31, 2020.
