During a press conference on Monday afternoon, the City of Clovis announced that it will be conducting a second round of Small Business CARES Act Relief Funds between Monday, November 23, 2020 and Friday, December 4th, 2020. Businesses may find the online application or download a paper copy at clovisnm.org/CARES.
The New Mexico CARES Small Business Continuity Grant is available to qualifying small businesses with 100 or fewer full-time equivalent employees and an annual revenue of $5 million or less prior to the impact of COVID-19. For a full list of qualifying expenses, please visit clovisnm.org/CARES.
“Helping businesses where possible is vital during this pandemic,” commented Mayor Michael Morris, “and we strive to help more businesses through this second round of funding.”
In order to assist as many businesses as possible the City has established a $100,000 assistance threshold. Businesses who did not apply for relief funds during the first application period are encouraged to apply.
Businesses who received funding during the first installment of the CARES Act but did not reach the $100,000 threshold may repeat the application process for additional funding not previously submitted. However, businesses who have not previously received funding during the first application round will be a priority in the second round of funding. The deadline for the application is Friday, December 4, 2020 at 5:00p.m. For questions or more information regarding the grant application, please contact the Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce at (575) 763-3435 or visit clovisnm.org/CARES.
