Small Business Support Grant Program

The Delaware County Economic Development Oversight Board is administering the Delco Strong Small Business Support Grant Program to provide small businesses located in Delaware County with financial relief due to business disruptions caused by the COVID‐19 pandemic shut down.

Submission of an application is not a guarantee of funding

Due to an anticipated high volume of applications, it is likely that not all applicants will be awarded a grant because of funding limitation.
