Dear Business Owner:

I sincerely hope this letter finds you, and your employees, healthy and safe. The past two years

have certainly been a challenging time for all of us, in particular for our local business owners,

and not-for-profit agencies.

We at the Town truly understand how invaluable our businesses and not-for-profits are to our

Community and the local economy. I am pleased to let you know that together with the Town

Board, the Town of Islip, like many other municipalities, has received grant funding from the

Federal Government’s American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The Town of Islip is proud to present

K.I.T. (Keep Islip Thriving) committing a portion of this pandemic relief funding to our small

businesses and not for profits. Please note that this is a limited opportunity that will be available

on a first-come-first-serve basis.

We encourage all local businesses and not-for-profits to review the enclosed grant application

and apply for the funding. Eligible candidates, who demonstrate a negative economic impact due

to COVID, will be able to receive a maximum grant of $5,000. No re-payment is required. All

applications should be submitted via email to For more

information, or to download the application, I encourage you to visit our website or call our Office of Economic Development at 631-224-5512.

The Town Board and I remain committed to doing all that we can to ensure that our businesses,

that have long been the back bone of our community, can successfully continue for years to come.

We thank you for all that you do for our Town, and look forward to continuing to work together

for all our residents.
