ELK RIVER -- Sherburne County businesses are encouraged to apply for up to $10,000 in grant money to offset COVID-19 related losses.

Sherburne County Commissioners approved the plan Tuesday. The county will receive approximately $1.87 million from the State of Minnesota as part of a COVID-19 relief fund.

Businesses that receive direct aid from the State are eligible to receive up to $5,000 from the county. Businesses that do not receive direct aid from the State are eligible to receive up to $10,000 from the county.

Applications will be accepted through January 22. Grant funds will be distributed within two weeks of Sherburne County receiving funds from the state.
