Pasco CARES Small Business PPE Reimbursement Program

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on November 15, 2020

Grant funding still available to help small businesses; cap raised to $1,500

Pasco CARES Small Business PPE Reimbursement Program

The Pasco Board of County Commissioners (BCC) is raising the cap on grant funding through the Pasco CARES Small Business Personal Protective Equipment Reimbursement Program.  The program, launched in May, reimburses small businesses in Pasco County for the cost of already-purchased Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as a result of COVID-19.  The cap is being raised from $1,000 to $1,500 per business.

If your business has already received funding through this grant, you can reapply to be reimbursed for additional eligible expenses; however, the total amount of your reimbursement through this program cannot exceed $1,500.

This assistance is available on a first-come, first-served basis through December 4, 2020, or until funds are exhausted, whichever comes first.  Pasco County received funding for this program through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security or CARES Act.
