JACKSON COUNTY, Ore.--- Jackson County businesses have until May 20th at midnight to apply for Southern Oregon Cares (SOCARES) grants funds.

The state of Oregon has released funds to the 15 counties that were in the extreme risk category just a few weeks ago. These funds will be going to local businesses that were financially impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Jackson County has received $1.4 million for the SOCARES grant.

Southern Oregon Regional Economy Development Inc. (SOREDI) says if not all of the funds are used, then the money will be returned to the state.

"It is our highest imperative to get all the funds out to businesses. and that's why we want to make sure that we have sufficient applications received by May 20th," Collen Padilla, executive director of SOREDI said.

Applications need to be fully completed to be considered and businesses need to be able to show proof. The applications will go through the Jackson County Commissioners for approval.

"Jackson county commissioners have elected to award up to $2,500 per full-time equivalent. That's going to be based on those quarterly payroll reports," Padilla said.

The original date for Jackson County business to apply for this grant was today-- but, with the time frame to do so being so short and with Tax Day, officials have decided to extend it to help as many local businesses as possible.
