The deadline for submissions for the Maui County Small Business Grant Program has been extended two weeks to April 30. The program is open to all small businesses in Maui County.
“I encourage small businesses to apply for this grant,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “This helps small business operators and their employees stay on the road to recovery. This is an investment in our people as we build a future that is more resilient and less dependent on the hospitality industry.”
The County of Maui offers the program in collaboration with the Credit Unions of Maui (Maui County FCU, Maui FCU, Kahului FCU, Valley Isle Community FCU, Wailuku FCU and Maui Teachers FCU). The program is part of the American Rescue Plan to assist small businesses in Maui County impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Maui County Small Business Grant should not be mistaken for the "Kokua Maui County Recovery & Relief Fund" that was administered in 2020 by the Credit Unions of Maui. This program is not an expense reimbursement program. Instead, qualified businesses will receive a $5,000 grant.
To qualify, businesses must now show a 10 percent decline in gross revenue from 2019 to 2020 verified by the State of Hawaii G49.
The following are the qualifications for the grant:
