letter for New Lebanon businesses

Attention businesses of New Lebanon who were negatively affected by COVID – the Town of New Lebanon would like to grant you ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) funds to help defray some of your losses. You will not have to pay this money back.

At the recent Town Board meeting, an application was designed to help you apply for a Grant of between $2,000 and $20,000. (See here for the Application) The application was designed to be as flexible as possible while still giving the Board the opportunity to assess grant requests fairly. The Board recognizes that applicants may have a strong application without all the required documentation, so it will make exceptions on a case-by-case basis, as long as they still fit within the allowable ARPA guidelines. Our review committee will work with you so your application gets the attention it deserves.

We can help you fill out the application, or we can review and improve it for you after you’ve done the work – it’s up to you. The application asks for the amount you are requesting, a description of how you’ll spend the funds and what problem the funds will help you solve or what you hope to achieve.

Final applications are due on October 7, 2022, so we need to get this process going soon. If you have any questions or would like help completing the application, please contact Monte Wasch at 518-781-0195 or email monte@fairpoint.net.
