HoCo Rise Howard County Business Grants

Round 4 HoCo Rise Business Grants Applications will open for restaurants and hotels on May 10th, 2021!

The purpose of the HoCo Rise Grant is to provide financial assistance to Howard County businesses in targeted sectors that have been most impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency and plan to re-open. Because of the limited funding available, eligible sectors have been identified and the grant formula is intended to distribute funds to all qualified businesses in that cohort. These grants are for locally-owned storefront retail, restaurants, and farmers that have experienced significant financial loss caused directly or indirectly by the COVID-19 public health emergency.
