Program set up to assist Muleshoe companies impacted by coronavirus pandemic

In an effort to assist small local businesses
impacted by COVID-19, the City of
Muleshoe and the Muleshoe Economic
Development Corporation have developed
the Muleshoe Cares Small Business
Grant Program.
This program is made possible through
the funds received from the Coronavirus
Aid, Relief, and Economic Security
(CARES) Act and the Muleshoe EDC who
has agreed to contribute to the fund. Qualifying
businesses will be eligible to receive
up to $2,500.
The purpose of the program is to assist
businesses who encountered significant
impacts due to COVID-19which resulted in
required closures, voluntary closures to
promote social distancing, or decreased
customer demand.
Grant awards will be available as a reimbursement
for the unexpected expenses
incurred on or after March 24, 2020. Eligible
businesses include those with a physical
location inside the Muleshoe city limits,
who have 15 employees or less, and
have encountered significant business interruptions
due to the public health emergency.
Application documents will be available
on the City of Muleshoe website beginning
October 15, 2020. Applications
will only be accepted between Oct. 19
through Oct. 30.
A Muleshoe Cares Grant Committee has
been organized to review grant applications.
Applicants will be asked to submit the
application and supporting documentation
to Ramon Sanchez, City Manager, by
email to rsanchez@muleshoetx.org or in person
at City Hall, 215 S 1st Street.
