Latest events, news and specials in North Central Kansas!

Join us on FB Live on the Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce page for a FIRST look at the Student Designed Carpentry House being auctioned off SOON!!

This week, Governor Kelly announced $9 million in grants through CDBG Economic Development Funds.  CDBG funds must be applied through a government entity.  At this time, both Mitchell County and the City of Beloit will be applying for funds after the Public Hearings next week.  Funds will be awarded on a first-come basis.  I am also attaching a FAQ about the program. 

Economic development grants provide communities with funding to help local businesses retain jobs for low-to-moderate income people. Grant funds can be used for expenses such as working capital (e.g., wages, utilities, rent) or to purchase up to 60 days of inventory needed to reopen, once allowed to reopen. 

To be eligible to receive a CDBG-CV Economic Development grant, the recipient business must be a for-profit business and retaining jobs for low to moderate-income people.  51% or more of the full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs retained must be for persons from low to moderate-income households as defined by HUD.  Here is the table for Mitchell County:

 1 Person2 Person3 Person4 Person5 Person6 Person7 Person8 Person
80% of Median$37,450$42,800$48,150$53,450$57,750$62,050$66,300$70,600

The grant application includes a narrative that will describe our community and the setbacks caused by COVID 19.   We do not have to list specific businesses, but the following information will be helpful in the application.

Please let me know the following:

  • Do you believe your business would have 51% of the employees fall under the low-to-moderate income limits?
  • How many full-time employees do you have?
  • Explain your need for funds as they relate to COVID 19?
  • How would the funds help reduce the setback caused by COVID 19?
