Grants available for Clive small businesses

A number of regional partners--including the City of Clive--have worked to launch the Small Business Recovery Grant program to help small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to Clive, this program is led by the Greater Des Moines Partnership, Polk County, City of Des Moines, City of Urbandale, Warren County, City of Johnston, City of Indianola, City of Norwalk, City of West Des Moines, City of Windsor Heights and the City of Carlisle.

The grant program is available for sole-proprietors or businesses with 0 – 30 employees that have had restrictions placed on their operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Grant awards will range from $1,000 – $5,000, with over $45,000 total to be distributed to eligible Clive businesses.  Preference will be given to businesses that have not yet received money from federal or state recovery programs as this regional program is intended to complement, not duplicate, other existing programs.
