Municipal Small Business Grants

Welcome to the Idaho Rebounds - Municipal Business Grant application.

The Governor’s Coronavirus Financial Advisory Committee (CFAC) created this grant to help local businesses and organizations affected by COVID-19 pandemic, enabling cities and counties to provide aid within their community.

The City of Eagle has requested a set aside of $300,000 from our current CFAC funding allocation as the initial upper limit for this grant program. Should approved program applications exceed this limit, we may seek to use an additional allocation of our current CFAC allotment. 

The Cares Act requires that payments from the Coronavirus Relief Fund only be used to cover expenses that:
  • Are necessary expenditures due to the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
  • That were NOT accounted for in the budget most recently approved as of March 27 (the date of enactment of the Cares Act)
  • Were incurred during the period that begins 3-1-2020 and ends on 12-30-2020
