County businesses take advantage of stipend programs
July 9, 2020
A total of 48 small business owners in Crook County have taken advantage of the state’s COVID-19 Business Relief Interruption fund. The fund is part of a suite of stipend programs that made use of CARES Act money to assist Wyoming’s businesses as they were forced to either change their operations or close down in response to the pandemic.
Crook County’s applicants are among 4211 statewide applications totaling $104.6 million that were submitted after the fund was launched on June 8. This, according to a press release from the Wyoming Business Council, exceeded initial expectations.
