Need Help for your Business due to COVID-19?

If you are a for-profit business located within the Town of Fairfield that employs five or fewer employees and that has been adversely impacted by the pandemic, the Town’s COVID-19 Micro-Enterprise Assistance Program may be able to help. The program was established to provide limited, one-time direct financial assistance to these eligible Fairfield small businesses to help them prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus pandemic. The program is funded through a grant from the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), and administered by the Town of Fairfield’s Department of Community & Economic Development. The business must have been in operation and be current on its federal, state and local tax obligations as of March 15, 2020. Further, the business must not have received, or been approved to receive, federal or state assistance for the same purpose.  Please go here to learn more or to apply.
