AURORA | Aurora restauranteurs can count on another round of emergency grants beginning Jan. 4 when the City of Aurora rolls out a million-dollar program fueled by CARES Act funds.
Restaurant owners can begin applying Monday, Jan. 4 at www.auroragov.org/rr. If eligible, business owners can receive up to $10,000 for rent and payroll expenses.
It’s the latest grant program designed to float restaurants through the worst of the pandemic, while in-person dining is still largely outlawed.
Restaurant owners that already took a grant from the city’s first three rounds of Aurora Economic Resiliency grants aren’t eligible this time around. The grants also can’t “duplicate needs funded by other programs or grants received by the applicants.”
Otherwise, restaurants, bars, breweries, wineries, distilleries and catering companies with 50 or less employees are all eligible.
This round of assistance will make $12 million total doled out by the City of Aurora to struggling businesses during the pandemic.
