The Town of Brookhaven has received a Special Allocation of funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (Public Law No. 116-136) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Town of Brookhaven, through the Department of Housing and Human Services, has created an Emergency Microenterprise Business Relief Grant Program to help mitigate the economic hardships experienced by small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding mechanism is designed to serve microenterprise businesses within the Town. A microenterprise business is a business with five or fewer employees, one or more of whom owns the business/enterprise. This will help to sustain the microenterprise business during this period of economic slow-down. The primary Community Development Block Grant objective of assistance to low-and-moderate income business owners will be through grants to assist in overhead costs of microenterprise businesses within the Town of Brookhaven. Grants provided may be up to $10,000 per business.
