MEDFORD, Ore. — Emergency grant funds for struggling small businesses in Jackson County have more than doubled following an infusion from the state's economic development agency, Business Oregon.

Jackson County says that it created the grant program with help from Southern Oregon Regional Economic Development, Inc (SOREDI) and Business Oregon in order to provide one-time financial assistance to small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program originally had grants in the sum of $145,000, but an infusion of $210,000 from Business Oregon recently came through.

“We have been working hard to get this program up and running and this addition could not have come at a better time," said Jackson County Commissioner Rick Dyer. "We hear from a lot of businesses that they are unsure of what to do as they plan for today and the future, and we hope this grant funding keeps businesses open and people employed."

Grant applications and eligibility requirements are posted on the SOREDI website. Completed applications and documentation can be submitted online or by email beginning at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 14. Applications submitted earlier will not be considered.

"The grant funding to qualified businesses will be distributed on a first come, first served basis until the grant funds are exhausted," Jackson County said.
