YoCo Strong Restart Fund & Data

The York County Commissioners voted to allocate a portion of the $40.5 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES)  Act funding to support a small business and nonprofit organization grant program. The YoCo Strong Restart program will be administered by the York County Economic Alliance and Community First Fund.

Utilizing the YoCo Strong Recovery Task Force report as guidance, the County will dedicate $10 million for small business support, and $4 million for nonprofit support. Grants amount will be up to $35,000 for eligible organizations negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To deploy these funds in an expedited manner to meet the guidelines set forth by the federal government, and ensure compliance the County government, the York County Economic Alliance in partnership with Community First Fund, will administer an application process for this funding.
