Application Process Now Open for CMH Business Innovation Grant
Medicine Hat – The City of Medicine Hat (CMH) is pleased to commence the application process for Phase 1 of the CMH Business Innovation Grant, part of the COVID-19 Assistance package approved at City Council on May 4, 2020. The assistance package is intended to support residents and businesses in coping with and recovering from the economic impacts of COVID-19.
The CMH Business Innovation Grant will invest up to $2M in grants for local businesses. Phase 1 of the grant (up to $500,000) will focus on supports required for local businesses to adapt to the guidelines mandated by the government for a safe workplace. This may include any new equipment businesses need to install for safe physical distancing, contact-less payment tools, PPE needs required to improve retail and office space, remote work platforms to allow for a business to operate at a distance, and more.
“We are committed to helping our local businesses and residents mitigate the challenges caused by the pandemic”, says Mayor Ted Clugston. “I am confident that the assistance the City is offering is amongst the most beneficial of any municipality across the country.”
While the City is responsible for assigning the criteria for the application, the application and approval process will be facilitated by Community Futures Entre-Corp.
