Lincoln Library helps owners applying for grant


Local businesses can now apply for up to $150,000 in COVID-19 relief funds.

Springfield hosted a press conference at Lincoln Library Wednesday announcing staff will be on site daily through Sept. 17 at the library to help business owners apply for part of a $250 million pool of funds. That money is part of the state’s Back to Business COVID-19 relief grant for businesses hardest hit during the pandemic.

“Small businesses are the backbone of Illinois’ economy and through our Back to Business program, we will help businesses and communities rebuild (and) put Illinois back on track for a robust economic recovery,” said Aly Grady, central regional manager for Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity‘s economic development team.
