City of Hokah COVID-19 Relief Grant
The City of Hokah is now accepting applications from businesses in Hokah City for the COVID-19 Relief Grant. The City of Hokah received funds from the federal government through the CARES Act to reimburse the City for expenses incurred responding to COVID-19. The Hokah City Council allocated $20,000 of its CARES Act funds to assist Hokah Businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19. The Hokah COVID-19 Relief Grant provides funding to Hokah businesses to partially reimburse them for their COVID-19 expenses, including the costs of business interruption due to mandatory state shutdowns, restrictions, lack of business, or lost revenue during the period March 1, 2020 through November 15, 2020.
Applications for the COVID-19 Relief Grant are due October 2, 2020. Grant awards will be made in mid-October after applications have been reviewed by the Hokah City Council. Please be advised that the Houston County EDA is also offering a grant program using CARES Act funds. You may apply for funding from both the City of Hokah COVID-19 Relief Grant and the Houston County Cares Act Business Grant, but you cannot receive funds from both grants for the same expenses.
If you are interested in applying, please download the application below and either email it to email@example.com or return it to Hokah City Center, 211 Main Street.
Hokah, Minnesota is a small town of about
600 located where Minnesota State Highway 44 meets the Historic Bluff
Country National Scenic Byway on Minnesota Highway 16. The city was
founded in 1851 and is named after a local Native American chief,
Wecheschatope Hokah. The word “hokah” itself means “root,” much like the
Root River that flows through at the foot of scenic bluffs of the
Driftless Area. The river provides opportunities for canoes, kayaks, and
fishing but Hokah’s main attraction is the beautiful Como Falls, the
site of countless weddings, get-togethers, and happy memories. Beyond
the falls lies the truly unique Hokah Pool, a spring-fed, sand-bottom
pool with no chemicals for an experience unlike any other. Out of the
water, Hokah boasts four parks, horseshoe courts, and a ball diamond
with a temptingly-short right-field porch.
