Downtown Kenosha, Inc. Small Business Recovery Fund

In response to the economic hardships that small businesses are experiencing from the COVID- 19 pandemic, Downtown Kenosha, Inc. is launching the Small Business Recovery Fund in an effort to retain jobs and stabilize local businesses within the Downtown Business Improvement District.

In an effort to immediately assist while awaiting larger lending approvals, Downtown Kenosha, Inc has designed this funding mechanism as a forgivable loan program with award amounts up to $5000.00 to aid in some relief while pivoting your operations.

The first application period, opening April 3rd, 2020, will accept applications until April 12th, and then be reviewed by the Advisory Committee for issuance of loan approvals. Reviews of applicants will be made the week of April 13th and notified by end of the week for disbursement of funds immediately.

Additional measures of financial adjustments are necessary and this loan is not meant to replace such efforts. Downtown Kenosha, Inc. staff will be happy to assist in communications with additional lending experts for WWBIC, KIVA, and SBA funding. Downtown Kenosha, Inc. will also endorse any applications necessary from additional lending programs.
