The Minnesota Legislature and Governor have passed legislation authorizing funding to Minnesota counties to distribute relief grants to local businesses and nonprofits impacted by an executive order related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Morrison County will receive $658,535.37 to administer the Morrison County Relief Grant Program in accordance with this legislation.

The program will run from Monday, Jan. 11, 2021, through Feb. 5, 2021, with awards issued no later than March 12, 2021. A complete application and IRS Form W9 must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 5, and additional information must be provided if requested.

Refer to the Morrison County Relief Grant Funding Program area on the Morrison County Government home page, for more information. The Overview and Eligibility document further explains the requirements and defines what businesses and nonprofits are both eligible and ineligible for this program.

Applicants must certify a financial hardship of at least 20% in 2020 as compared to 2019 as a result of a Minnesota Governor Executive order or due to adverse impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. Previous grant awards are required to be disclosed but do not disqualify an organization from applying.
