The Waynesboro office of Economic Development and Tourism is offering COVID-19 business resources during the pandemic, including information about aid from local, state and federal sources.
The City of Waynesboro has allocated more than $283,000 for small business grants to assist local businesses that have suffered losses due to closures during the COVID-19 pandemic through a Renaissance Fund. The Renaissance Fund offers competitive grants of up to $10,000 for Waynesboro businesses and is available to for-profit Waynesboro-based businesses with fewer than 20 full-time employees that did not receive a PPP forgivable loan or an EIDL loan.
Grant funds may be used to reimburse the costs of business interruption caused by required closures, including PPE, other equipment needed to reopen safely, cleaning, and rent or mortgage.
