Warren County to Re-Launch CARES Act Grant Application Portal for Round 3

Warren County has appropriated a portion of the funds that the County has received under the CARES Act to the Front Royal and Warren County Chamber of Commerce (the “Chamber”) and will conduct a third (and final) round of financial assistance.

The third round business grant program will provide $100,000 in funds.  Including the first and second rounds, a total of $1,839,560 has been available for distribution by the County. 

Warren County has realized that one group of businesses, those located within Front Royal that are not required to have a business license, have not been eligible to receive relief funds so far from either the County or the Town of Front Royal.  This third round program is intended to provide funds to such businesses.

This final program requires that the entity or individual must have been adversely affected by COVID-19, and only applies to entities and individuals who are located within the Town of Front Royal and that are not required to have a business license.  Grants vary from $5,000 to $40,000 depending upon the size of the entity measured in accordance with its revenue. The grants do not need to be repaid.  Businesses with annual revenues of less than $6 million are eligible to apply.  Other program requirements apply to this final round.

The Chamber will begin receiving applications on Monday, November 9, 2020 at 9:00 AM. An online application can be completed and submitted at www.warrencountyva.net/warren-county-cares, or a paper copy application can be picked up at the Warren County Government Center Administration Office or at the Chamber. All paper copy applications must be returned to the Chamber. The application window will close on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 5:00 PM.
