In early August, Red Lake County was eligible to receive $531,102.00 of Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds, as assigned through the State of Minnesota.

The Red Lake County Board approved to allocate up to $318,000 of this funding toward a County Small Business Relief Fund program in the form of Individual Grants for our small businesses in the County to assist with business income losses due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The second round of CARES Act Relief Funding has been extended. It is available to Red Lake County businesses. Businesses can apply for funds if they can prove comparative losses between 2019 and 2020. First-round applicants are encouraged to re-apply.

Grant applications will be reviewed by a committee comprised of County Officials on a weekly basis until the allotment of funds has been exhausted. The deadline has been extended and applications are due by NOON Monday, November 9, 2020.
