The Maui County Small Business Grant Program is open to all small businesses in Maui County beginning today.
In early January, the County of Maui announced the Maui County Small Business Grants for Restaurants, Bars and Gyms. Effective March 1, the program became the Maui County Small Business Grant for all small businesses in Maui County.
The County of Maui offers the program in collaboration with the Credit Unions of Maui (Maui County FCU, Maui FCU, Kahului FCU, Valley Isle Community FCU, Wailuku FCU and Maui Teachers FCU). The program is part of the American Rescue Plan to assist small businesses in Maui County impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Maui County Small Business Grant should not be mistaken for the "Kokua Maui County Recovery & Relief Fund" that was administered in 2020 by the Credit Unions of Maui. This program is not an expense reimbursement program. Instead, qualified businesses will receive a $5,000 grant.
Another program change is that businesses must now show a 10 percent decline (instead of the earlier requirement of 20 percent) in gross revenue from 2019 to 2020 verified by the State of Hawaii G49.
The following are the qualifications for the grant:
