News Release
Sherwood Mayor announces Emergency Relief Program for Businesses - 03/26/20

As a result of the current Covid-19 emergency, Mayor Keith Mays is announcing a new program for Sherwood small businesses that can help assist them through this period.  The Small Business Emergency Relief Program is a commitment of $100,000 to help small businesses immediately offset some of the economic impacts due to Covid-19.

Mayor Mays stated “This pandemic is causing unprecedented harm to local businesses and we don’t know how long it will last.  I think it is critical for the city to do what we can to rapidly deteriorating businesses conditions.  We can get funds to local businesses in matter of a few days while they work to get additional help from state and federal government programs that are starting to take shape.”

Qualified businesses are eligible to receive up to $2,500 per business.  Information and further details about the program are available on the city’s website.  The application process will be entirely on-line and will begin to be accepted at 9:00 am on Saturday, March 28, 2020.  For specific questions about the program, contact Bruce Coleman, Economic Development Manager at 503.625.4206 or by email at colemanb@sherwoodoregon.gov
