NEW HANOVER COUNTY — New Hanover County has awarded 130 local businesses with Covid-19 grant funding. At $1.3 million combined, each business will receive a $10,000 grant.

The funding was administered through the county’s Small Business Economic Incentive Grant Program made possible through Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding.

New Hanover County accepted applications between June 1 and 5 and awarded grants to eligible applicants by using a random lottery system.

Out of the 130 awardees, 63% of businesses are owned by women and minorities, according to a county news release. The grants were made available to businesses with up-to-date tax payments, six months or older, with 25 or fewer employees, and an owner that lives in county limits.

Funds must be tracked and spent on hiring or rehiring employees and toward social distancing or increased sanitation expenses. All expenditures must be made by the end of the year.
