The hospitality and tourism industry has been the hardest hit by COVID-19. A couple local breweries have contributed to a fund to help other small businesses in Greater Green Bay out of these difficult times.
The past three months have been weird, scary, confusing, and devastating. There is so much unknown at the present and uncertainty of the future. Amid a global health pandemic, you were most likely forced to close your doors, or at the very least, quickly change your business strategy.
Yet the bills didn’t stop…
The world kept turning. The employees you were able to keep still needed a paycheck. The rent or mortgage still needed to be paid. You still needed to provide groceries for your family. Your business still needed to be marketed to future potential customers. Life would eventually resume, to some sort of normalcy.
The Green Bay All Together grant would like to help you resume normalcy by offering $1,000 to select businesses who are eligible based on the following grant requirements:
- Business must be in the tourism and hospitality sector located in Brown County
- Business must have 1 – 25 full-time employees (not including per diem and part time staff)
- Business must have been open for one full year prior to Emergency Order #12: Safer At Home Order issued on March 24, 2020
Application deadline is June 26, 2020 at 5:00pm CT.
Applications are reviewed by a committee of your hospitality and tourism peers. Grant recipients will be chosen based on demonstrated financial need as well as potential to make the strongest impact for the good of our community.
The number of grants will vary based upon availability of funds. Grants will be awarded approximately two weeks after the application deadline. We will notify applicants via email and by phone.
If your business meets these eligibility requirements, please complete the application.
