Grants in an amount up to $1,500 will be available to eligible McKinney-based small businesses enduring economic hardships due to the  COVID-19 pandemic.

Award will be based on the documentation submitted for eligible business expenses.

Total program funding will be in an amount up to $1 million dollars.
