    Board Amends Criteria for Small Business Restart and Non-Profit Assistance Program
    HENRY COUNTY, GA- October 21, 2020—The Henry County Board of Commissioners approved an amended resolution to ease applicant requirements for small businesses and non-profit agencies in Henry County that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. The action came at the October 20 Commission meeting.
    At an earlier meeting this month, Board members requested that changes be made to Resolution 20-188. Those changes include the Payment Protection Program restriction, the eligibility of certain elected or appointed officials other than the Board of Commissioners and reconsideration of any imposed deadlines.
    In addition to the Board’s requested changes, Grants Administrator Kimberly Monast, who made the presentation this week, shared additional suggestions that the Small Business Restart and Non-profit Assistance Review Committee proposed for Commissioners to consider. All revisions are listed below:

    • Removed Payment Protection Program restriction and added a threshold of $150,000 to differentiate small and large businesses
    • Removed elected official restriction with the exception of the Henry County Board of Commissioners and members of the Henry County Small Business and Non-Profit Assistance Review Committee
    • Extended the small business use of fund deadline to December 31 and extended the non-profit use of fund deadline to March 31, 2021
    • Amended the working capital for non-profits
    • Removed franchise restrictions
    • Amended restrictions for individuals who receive services from non-profits
    • Amended responsibilities and program name to the Henry County Small Business Restart and Non-Profit Assistance Program

    In related news, the Board also awarded 10 Henry County small businesses for COVID-19 relief funding through the Restart Assistance Program.
    If eligible, Henry County small businesses and non-profits are encouraged to apply for the Small Business Restart and Non-Profit program to receive assistance.
