In January, the Olmsted County Board of Commissioners announced it allocated a total of $3,388,968 in economic relief funds to small businesses and non-profits affected by COVID-19 as part of the State of Minnesota County Relief Funding Program.

According to a press release from Olmsted County, a total of 169 small businesses met the eligibility criteria and were chosen as grant recipients, and 34 non-profit organizations met the eligibility criteria and were chosen as grant recipients.

A total of $2,711,174 was allocated to the grant program for small businesses and food/beverage-serving 501(c)(8) and 501(c)(19) non-profits, administered by Rochester Area Economic Development, Inc, and $677,794 was allocated to the grant program for 501(c)(3) non-profits administered by the Rochester Area Foundation (RAF).

After RAEDI and RAF concluded their relief programs for small businesses and non-profits, it was determined that RAEDI program was oversubscribed and the RAF program was undersubscribed. Olmsted County decided to reallocate $133,365.63 in funds from the non-profit program to the small business program funding to $2,881,651.75 and a decrease in the non-profit program funding to $544,428.37.
