Commission extends aid deadline for restaurants

 

May 26, 2021



Linn County Commissioners Roger Nyquist, Sherrie Sprenger and Will Tucker have extended the deadline for restaurant owners who wish to apply for financial assistance due to the COVID-19 pandemic and state guidelines until May 28.

Linn County has received $950,000 in federal CARES Act funds and the Board of Commissioners established the program to provide $4,000 to local restaurants.

Businesses must have been substantially prohibited from operating at normal capacity due to the state’s Executive Orders 20-66 and 21-10.

Businesses must be for-profit, have been in operation before April 30, 2021, and employ at least one person full-time. They must not be delinquent on federal, state or local taxes and must intend to reopen.

Applications may be obtained at the Board of Commissioners office on the second floor of the courthouse, or from the Linn County website at http://www.co.linn.or.us.
