Clay County Cities Open CARES Grant Applications

August 2020

Pleasant Valley was one of the most recent Clay County communities to work with the EDC on CARES Small Business Grants for businesses in their community.

The Pleasant Valley City Council established the CARES Small Business Grant Program on Aug. 3 to be administered by the Clay County EDC. This program will issue $100,000 in grant funds to small business in Pleasant Valley. Small businesses can apply for a grant up to $5,000 to reimburse business expenses related to COVID-19.
