MARIETTA - Cobb County Government is partnering with SelectCobb to provide relief to small businesses that have been devastated by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Small Business Relief Grant has been established to assist businesses of up to 100 employees with various operational and overhead expenses. The program will be funded by way of a portion of Cobb County’s disbursement of funding via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. These funds are intended to be used by communities to deal with the impacts of COVID-19. The Cobb County Board of Commissioners has allocated $50 million to be disbursed by SelectCobb to small businesses impacted by the pandemic. The information below will assist companies in learning about the grant tiers, eligible uses of funds, eligibility criteria, the application process, the required memorandum of understanding, and details on how grant monies will be disbursed.

New for Round 2:

Businesses that have received financial assistance from the Payroll Protection Program or Small Business Administration are now eligible for a grant.

Businesses can include both W-2 and 1099 employees toward their total number of employees.

Applications for Round 2  are now open and close August 21st at 5pm. 

Program Summary: To help alleviate the financial burden that COVID-19 has caused, the Cobb County Board of Commissioners has allocated $50 million in federal funds to a small business grant program, which will be administered by Select Cobb. Eligible Marietta businesses can apply for grants of up to $20,000-$40,000. This is not a first come, first served process. ALL applications that meet requirements will be considered!
