City of Thorne Bay Grant Application
To Benefit Small Businesses and Non-Profit Organizations
The City of Thorne Bay is receiving relief funding from the State of Alaska CARES
program to help mitigate the effects of COVID 19. Each municipality is receiving
funding based on population.
A portion of the funds will be available as grants to small businesses and non-profits in
Thorne Bay that have been impacted by the pandemic. As grant money, these funds
will not need to be paid back.
The funds are not intended to provide extensive support, however they will provide
some relief for weathering economic conditions that may last a much longer time than
the close of this supplemental funding (Dec. 30, 2020). The City will provide other
resources for businesses and non-profits to pursue additional funding as information
becomes available. (Please check our website –
Allowable costs for these funds must be documented:
WARNING: If a small business applies for and receives money from the City of Thorne Bay
CARES grant program, then the business will NOT be eligible for the other much more
comprehensive government programs such as the Payroll Protection Plan, EIDL or the Credit
Union 1 grants.
It is in your best interests to pursue these other funds first because the amount of funding
is so much bigger. If your business has already received money from one of these programs,
you can still be eligible for The City of Thorne Bay’s CARES grant. Also, if your business is
waiting for funds from one of these other programs, the city can retain funding from this
application and disburse it to you after you have received relief money from one of the other
programs. The City can retain the funding no later than October 1
