Skokie CDBG-CV Small Business Assistance Program

Step 1 - Preliminary Eligibility

The purpose of the preliminary eligibility application was to maximize the chances of identifying businesses that are potentially eligible for grants and to minimize the business owner’s up-front investment of time and documentation gathering.  

Small business funding needs provided in the preliminary eligibility survey responses exceed available funding; therefore, Step 1 is now complete.

Step 2 - Funding Applications

Small business owners are being contacted directly by Village staff with the Step 2 application and procedures.
