Guilford County has launched a million-dollar grant program to help economic development and tourism non-profits impacted by the pandemic. 

The program offers immediate financial assistance with one-time grants of up to $50,000. It’s aimed at non-profit organizations that support economic growth and development, as well as those that promote tourism to Guilford County venues, attractions and events.

According to a news release, the county has budgeted up to one million dollars in emergency relief funds from the CARES federal stimulus package.

Organizations must be able to show they have been negatively impacted by COVID-19, and that they have not already received more than $50,000 in previous Guilford County assistance programs.

Applications are available through the county website.

With about 600,000 residents, Guilford County has met a minimum population requirement to qualify for tens of millions of dollars in federal assistance through the CARES act.
