The Spotsylvania County Economic Development Department has been authorized by the Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors to administer a small business reimbursement program, to assist small businesses with unexpected expenses that have been incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is designed to reimburse small businesses for COVID-19-related business expenses.
Examples of qualifying expenses for reimbursements are outdoor seating, outdoor heaters, social distancing measures, video conferencing subscriptions, technology for e-commerce, personal protective equipment, thermometers, and other business related expenses. Each Spotsylvania County business that submits an application will be eligible for up to $5,000 in reimbursement funds and may submit multiple applications throughout the program until the business reaches the maximum reimbursement award of $5,000.
