CDBG-CV Business Grant

CDBG-CV Business Grant

📣📣Due to limits on funding from the CDBG-CV grant, there are funds remaining. We encourage other businesses to apply while we continue reviewing our current applicants.


The City of El Dorado received an award of $132,000 from the Kansas Department of Commerce for a COVID-19 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) Program to assist businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic who employ persons from low- to moderate-income households.

The City invites businesses within the community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to apply for CDBG-CV funds. Businesses must provide the necessary documentation, described in the grant packet, for the City to determine a business’ eligibility. Failure to provide the required documentation by the deadline may require the City to disqualify an applicant. Businesses must meet the following requirements to be eligible to receive funds:

  • Must be physically located within the corporate limits of the City of El Dorado;
  • Must have one to fifty employees, including the owner;
  • Must have at least 51% of their full-time working for persons from low to medium income households
  • Must provide proof of financial hardship due to COVID-19;
  • Must submit the application and all required supporting documentation; and
  • Must disclose if they have received capital through alternative sources such as the federal Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) or Payroll Protection Program (PPP) Loan at the time of application submittal.

The City will make CDBG-CV funds available so long as such funds remain available for distribution. Businesses with one to five employees may receive grants of up to $7,500 and $10,000 for businesses with six to fifty employees.

Grant recipients authorize the City to publicly disclose their business name and grant award amount. The City will not disclose other information submitted by the business unless otherwise required to do so by law.

Businesses seeking a grant from the CDBG-CV program should carefully review the grant packet to determine the requirements and necessary documentation prior to submitting an application. The City will only consider complete applications.

See below grant packet for information and applications. The City must receive grant applications by 3:00 pm on OCTOBER 9th, 2020. Late applications will receive consideration only if funding remains available after the first round of funding.

BRING YOUR APPLICATIONS TO CITY HALL, 220 E. First Ave.  

Please direct questions concerning the program to Gloria McDowell at (316) 440-3962.
