Westminster, MD, Tuesday, September 15, 2020 –The Carroll County Department of Economic Development is accepting Carroll Rebound grant applications from businesses, nonprofits, and farms until September 30th at 5pm. The Carroll Rebound grant program provides grants to assist eligible Carroll County small businesses, nonprofits, sole proprietors and agribusiness/farm operations with their COVID-19 pandemic recovery efforts. Grant applications will be reviewed by an internal team with awards based on need and the pandemic’s impact on the business, farm, or nonprofit.

Grant recipients have been able to get their operations back on track by staying current with software and technology needs and investing in new equipment and marketing outreach. Director of Economic Development Director Jack Lyburn shared “We have received many emails and calls about how the grant awards have helped to reposition the businesses to improve operations and regain losses. This is exactly what we had hoped that Carroll Rebound would accomplish. It is our goal to help as many businesses as we can.”
