To financially support businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Clackamas County will offer Small Business Assistance Grants to businesses with 25 or fewer employees in unincorporated areas of the county in mid-June.  

The grant program is designed to provide relief to some of the county’s hardest hit businesses. The County encourages applications from businesses owned by minorities, women and veterans. 

The grants, provided in cooperation with Micro Enterprise Services of Oregon (MESO), will total $245,000, with individual grants starting at $2,500. 

Grant applications will be accepted in mid-June; exact dates will be announced soon. Only applications received by the deadline will be considered. A short application period will help the county get money to business owners quickly.

Applications will be available online.
