[September 23, 2020]
The Mount Pulaski Economic
Development and Planning Board (EDPB) has established a Covid-19
Relief Fund to help those in our business community who need
financial help through these uncertain times.
Because we are uncertain of the duration of this
economic hardship our plans are based on thirty-day intervals which
will enable us to update our plan with the latest information
available and remain flexible.
We have allocated $ 50,000.00 for the first thirty days beginning on
April 13 and running through May 13. A business can be granted up to
$2,500.00 during this first thirty day period. We have tried to make
the process easy to use to allow the EDPB a quick turn around on the
applications. After this first thirty day period (April 13t h to May
13t h) EDPB will determine how much to allocate for each business
during the second thirty day period (May 14t h to June 14th).
The EDPB is asking only two things of our local
business. The first is to work quickly in getting your application
form filled out and submitted as we plan to review these first
applications on April 11th and monies distributed the next week.

Second, we ask that you please be honest and prudent
in stating what your business currently needs. This will allow us to
better serve our community for the days and months to come. We
understand that all businesses are being affected at different
extremes by this economic shut down. We hope that our local business
community will be able to weather this storm together and support
each other in these trying times.
