Final Recipients of the Galesburg COVID-9 Relief Grant Program Announced

The City of Galesburg is set to announce the recipients of the Galesburg COVID-19 Relief Program. In December, Galesburg officially announced the creation of the Galesburg COVID-19 Small Business Relief Program. The fund is comprised of $250,000 in funding from the State of Illinois and $250,000 in funding from the City of Galesburg. Thirty-five Galesburg businesses will receive between $5,000 and $25,000 in grant funding to help cover losses incurred due to the pandemic. Priority for the program was to aid small businesses in the restaurant, retail, bar, spa, and salon industries that could demonstrate losses caused by the pandemic. Recipients receiving $25,000 in grants include the Orpheum Theatre and Discovery Depot Children’s Museum. Some of the businesses receiving $20,000 include Baked Pizzas, Innkeepers, The Taco Hideout, and Iron Spike Brewing Company among others. Mayor John Pritchard said in a statement, “The City of Galesburg is excited to be able to step up and provide assistance for many small businesses that underpin our community’s economy and quality of life.” See the full list below.
