COVID Relief Grants Available through Crow Wing County

We are Lakes Proud.

Brainerd Lakes Chamber


IMPORTANT: Apply by the January 12 Deadline

Area counties will again disburse COVID relief funds to hurting businesses and nonprofits, this time through a State of Minnesota allocation of more than $1.2 million. Crow Wing County opened their Economic Assistance Grant Relief program last Friday, and we will share Cass County details as they become available. All funds must be expended by March 15 although local governments are working to get them out much quicker.

Earlier this fall, 385 organizations received more than $3.8 million of Crow Wing County’s federal CARES Act allocation. Given the limited state funds, it’s possible that smaller grants will be awarded depending on the number of applicants or other priority considerations. Our friends at BLAEDC are again administering the grant process and are always available to provide answers and coaching. They deserve many kudos for their efforts.
