Layoff Aversion Grant Funds Available

Rogue Workforce Partnership currently has grant funds available to help businesses in the Rogue Valley avoid layoffs. These funds do not have to be repaid, and are available immediately. They can also be mixed with other federal and state funds.

These funds can be used for purchases of supplies, small equipment, or services that will help businesses avoid some or all layoffs being considered due to the COVID-19 crisis. These fund can also pay for some limited wage replacement, but only if it’s tied to a longer-term layoff aversion strategy. Other programs from the SBA, PPP, or others might be used instead for a broader wage replacement effort.

Amount: Grant limit is $5,000 to $10,000, but funds are limited, so APPLY NOW! Once approved, funds are available immediately, upon submittal of receipts.
