At Monday’s Pottawatomie County Board of County Commissioners meeting, Shawnee Forward presented the results of the Small Business Economic Grant Program it championed.
According to the presentation, Shawnee Forward received 64 eligible applications. After the board’s review process, Shawnee Forward determined 33 small businesses will receive grant money, totaling $105,000.
It was previously reported that Pottawatomie County pledged $100,000, but that amount was contingent upon the City of Shawnee matching the contribution. Pottawatomie County ended up giving $50,000 to the program. The City of Shawnee contributed $50,000 and the City of Tecumseh chipped in $5,000.
It was reported by Shawnee Forward CEO, Rachel Melot, that about half of the businesses receiving funds were Shawnee Forward and Tecumseh Chamber of Commerce members.
