Due to COVID-19’s mandate for social distancing inside eating and drinking establishments, the need for outdoor seating has become pivotal to business survival to increase customer capacity. Powhatan County would like to assist these businesses with temporary modifications of their spaces. As part of the CARES Act funding Business Assistance Grant Program, this specific grant addresses those needs of businesses facing continued restrictions on capacity throughout the winter. The grant is for the reimbursement of funds spent on specific winterizing items. The funds must have been spent or be spent by December 30, 2020 to be applicable.
