Additional relief is on the way for businesses that suffered losses during the pandemic

The City of Port St. Lucie, in partnership with the Florida Small Business Development Center at Indian River State College, will launch a new COVID-19 Small Business Grant Program to support small businesses that were impacted by the pandemic.

The City of Port St. Lucie received $423,707, from FloridaCommerce through its Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus Program. The City will allocate this funding for the COVID-19 Small Business Grant Program. Eligible small businesses may receive up to $10,000, in the form of a reimbursement grant, which can be used for business-related expenses, including mortgage, rent, utility, insurance premium costs, reopening costs, costs for safety measures and payroll during business closure.

On October 11, 2023, at 9 a.m., the COVID-19 Small Business Grant Program application portal will open, and the application will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on October 17, 2023. Applications will be processed in the order they are received. If an application is incomplete, or missing the supporting documentation necessary for processing, it will not be processed until it is completed. An applicant who applies and meets all the eligibility criteria will be notified by Port St. Lucie Neighborhood Services Department about the status of their application and any future steps in the processing of their file by telephone and/or email (if applicable).
