The City of Kenosha has approved an agreement that would have the Kenosha Area Business Alliance (KABA) administer the City’s and Snap-on, Inc’s emergency grant program to assist small businesses adversely impacted by the state’s Safer-At-Home order, aimed at limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
In addition, if some businesses need more than $15,000, they may apply for an interest-free loan of up to $15,000.
A public announcement will be made on when and how to apply after the grant application process has been formalized.
KABA, in conjunction with Kenosha County, has developed signage for Kenosha County businesses to promote the fact that they are committed to keeping their customers and employees safe, and that they are making every attempt to adhere to guidelines consistent with the Kenosha County Kickstart Plan.
