Grants of up to $25,000 to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations and businesses in eligible locations for financial assistance during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. The purpose of the program is to mitigate the adverse financial effects of the pandemic, stimulate the economy, and support the community as a whole. Funds may be used for working capital, personal protection modifications, equipment, or capital improvement projects. Requests will be accepted from applicants who are located in Webster or will be relocating to Webster.

ARPA funds will help stimulate private sector investment based on the eligibility criteria set forth by the ARPA guidelines as outlined in the U.S. Department of the Treasury Interim Rule 31 CFR Part 35. The Town of Webster ARPA Grant Fund Program is designed to assist businesses that were open as of March 3, 2021. Incentives and improvements eligible for funding are not limited to any one area or type of project; however, grant applications must show a connection to COVID-19. If grant applications are for past due bills, applicant must be able to show a loss in revenue. If grant applications are for a future or ongoing project, the applicant must show how the project will make their organization more COVID-19 compliant. Funds are limited and will be prioritized for projects that will bring about the greatest return on investment to the town. 

ARPA funds can be used for a variety of projects or uses. As funding is limited, projects that offset harmful economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and make long-term impacts to the Town of Webster and its residents will receive highest priority. In certain situations grant funds may be used to pay expenses that are in arrears, such as rent, mortgage, utilities, insurance etc.

Eligible project types fall into two categories:

  • New Projects / Future Expenses: For projects not yet started. ARPA funds can be used for working capital (rent/mortgage, insurance, utilities, technical assistance, etc. to stabilize the business) or for personal protection modifications or equipment due to COVID-19. Future expenses AFTER March 3, 2021 and through December 31, 2024 may be eligible.
  • Completed Projects / Past Expenses:¬† For projects previously completed. Products or services¬† received after March 3, 2021 may be eligible for funding if applicant can show a reduction in receipts due to COVID-19. ARPA funds can be used for working capital (rent/mortgage, insurance, utilities, technical assistance, etc. to stabilize the business) or for personal protection modifications or equipment due to COVID-19. Past due invoices for products or services received AFTER March 3, 2021 may be eligible.
