The Columbia County Commissioners are providing $100,000 to reimburse private businesses for purchases of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to address safety issues due to Covid-19. Eligible businesses must be private, for-profit businesses and must be physically located within Columbia County.

Private businesses may apply for reimbursement by submitting the following information to the county:

On a single sheet, list the following:

  • Name of the business
  • Address if the business (include street, city, zip)
  • Address to where a check may be mailed
  • Business EIN
  • A one-paragraph narrative describing the PPE and its purpose

Additionally, the business must attach copies of receipts to confirm the purchases. Purchases are to have occurred between March 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021.

The grant window will be open from August 1-August 14. All grants will be considered. If the eligible requests exceed the available grant amount, businesses will receive a pro rata share of the available $100,000 fund.
