Eligibility for Johnstown Micro-Grant Changed to Assist More Businesses

Johnstown Town Council has made modifications to the eligibility for the Small Business Micro-Grant Program Monday, July 20 to help more local businesses dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision came at a Town Council Meeting where Town Council Members discussed changes and clarifications made. Businesses that consist of the owner working for themselves or those who do not have a business or license but acquire a business license are encouraged to apply for the Micro-Grant. Additionally, applicants who have been already awarded but requested less than $10,000 on their original application can reapply for the difference.

The current Micro-Grant eligibility requirements for businesses are as follows:

  • Have an active Town Business License
  • Have at least one physical location within the Town, with no more than three total
    locations
  • Have had 1-50 employees on March 10, 2020 (“Employee” can include the owner)
  • Not be, or not have been, engaged in any illegal activity
  • Show that historical profits would have been sufficient for the business to stay in operation and that COVID-19 outbreak has had a negative impact
  • Be registered and in good standing with the Colorado Secretary of State
