MWVCOG continues to work in partnership with Willamette Workforce Partnership staff in distribution of approximately $450,000 in grant funding to eligible businesses within the Willamette Valley. More information on businesses eligible for the Emergency Business Assistance grant funds can be found at the Willamette Workforce Partnership website.
MWVCOG GIS staff provided mapping support to assist the MWVCOG and Willamette workforce Partnership with processing grant applications associated with the Emergency Business Assistance grant program awards from Business Oregon. Open to businesses with 25 or fewer employees that are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, mapping the business locations helped ensure the geographic distribution targets associated with the grant awards were met.
