GRANT — Multiple businesses along Geek Street garnered funds through the Kokomo StrongER program.

A smattering of businesses received forgivable loans from the city and county, which launched programs in response to the economic shutdown. So who made the cut?

The businesses listed below garnered economic development income tax (EDIT) funds in the form of forgivable loans through either the city’s Kokomo StrongER Forgivable Loan Program or Howard County’s Emergency Relief Forgivable Loan Program. Both programs were launched to support local businesses that could demonstrate losses in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each program awarded businesses a $5,000 forgivable loan, with Kokomo’s program available to businesses within the city’s limits and the county’s open to applicants within Howard County but outside the city limits. The city made a total of $1 million available to its program, with the county putting $250,000 into the coffers of its loan program.
