Round 2

ROUND TWO GRANT APPLICATION

APPLICATION PERIOD: OCTOBER 2 THROUGH 16, 2020 

AWARDS ANNOUNCED BY OCTOBER 23, 2020

The Village will award up to $5,000 per applicant, or as funding allows after Round 1 grants have been awarded, for eligible future expenses planned between October 2, 2020 and December 30, 2020.  Click here to apply and see below for further guidance.

In Round 2, the Village will be awarding a total of $85,475 (or more if additional funds remain from Round 1), for expenses planned for the remainder of the grant period, between October 2 and December 30, 2020.  Per NM Department of Finance and Administration guidelines, the CARES Act Small Business Grants are reimbursement grants, meaning that we cannot fund your business up front for future planned expenditures.  If funds are awarded to your business during Round 2, the Village can reimburse for eligible expenditures up to your awarded amount, as soon as proof of expenditure is provided.

The Village is making every effort to ensure this funding is accessible to every business that needs it.   Therefore, we will not deny any eligible grant application.  If funding requests for Round 2 exceed the total funding available, we will proportionately reduce each total award based on the grant’s score.  Review scoring matrix here.

Grant applications may be submitted either via email to Ralph L. Mims, Economic Development Manager, at mimsr@loslunasnm.gov, or in person at Village Hall front desk.   Village Hall is located at 660 Main St. NW.

APPLICATION REVIEW

Per NM Department of Finance guidelines, only the grant application itself needs to be submitted for your business to be deemed eligible and considered for this grant.  Supporting documentation will be required when the award is accepted.  PLEASE NOTE:  If you cannot provide all of the required supporting documentation, or if your supporting documentation does not reflect the information included in your grant application that helped the Village determine your eligibility, your award may be rescinded and the funds awarded to you redistributed to other applicants.  Please ensure that all of your required supporting documentation is in order at the time of application to ensure this does not happen.
