The village of Vicksburg and the Vicksburg Community Foundation have partnered to distribute $40,000 to local businesses impacted by restrictions wrought by the COVID-19 virus.
During their Dec. 21 meeting, council members heard village manager Jim Mallery describe the Business Survivability Grant, which creates financial assistance for businesses that meet eligibility criteria. Mallery said about two dozen potentially qualifying business have been made aware of the opportunity.
Grant-request forms were mailed to prospective recipients Dec. 22. Potential recipients have until Jan. 13 to return an application and village council members will then determine the beneficiaries during the council’s Jan. 18 meeting.
