ECONOMIC RELIEF FUND ESTABLISHED
FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
NEW BOSTON INDIVIDUALS AND SMALL BUSINESSES
AFFECTED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Mayor Williams and New Boston Village Council have announced that an “Economic Relief Fund” has been established to financially assist New Boston individuals and small businesses who have been economically affected by the Coronavirus (COVID–19) pandemic. The federal dollars are provided to the Village through the Federal CARES Act fund distributed to the Village of New Boston for necessary pandemic related expenses and small business grant programs.
The funds may be used by New Boston residents to provide financial relief for rent, mortgage, and utility payments for those economically impacted by the virus while small businesses may also receive relief from operating costs due to the virus. There is a maximum award up to $1,000 for each household or small business.
The program is being administered by Community Action of Scioto County, where applications may be picked–up beginning on Monday, September 14. The $50,000 fund will only be available until the end of the year or when the fund monies have been distributed, whichever comes first.
