Frequently Asked Questions

Are companies with more than 50 employees eligible for CDBG-CV? No. Companies with more than 50 employees are not eligible to apply for CDBG-CV. The city or county can, however, apply for regular CDBG economic development grants. More information on these grants can be found online at www.kansascommerce.gov/cdbg.

What does “working capital” mean? Working capital can cover inventory, wages, utilities and everyday expenses except for paying existing debt off. Businesses must provide invoices to the city/county when drawing down funds.

Can businesses apply for CDBG-CV funds through the Department of Commerce? No. Only non-entitlement Kansas cities and counties can apply for CDBG-CV funding through the Department of Commerce. Businesses must make their applications for funding directly with the city or county where they are located.

How will cities and/or counites distribute Economic Development grants to businesses? Each city and/or county determines how to allocate the funds awarded to them on a local level. The amount of funds able to be granted to businesses is dependent on the number of jobs retained per business. Here is the criteria Baldwin City is using.

What types of businesses are eligible to receive CDBG-CV funding from their city and/or county? Businesses and organizations that suffered losses due to COVID-19, and who have not received funding from other resources, are eligible to receive CDBG-CV funding from their city and/or county. Businesses must have been in existence as of March 1, 2020.

Are businesses owned by public officials eligible to receive CDBG-CV grants? No. Companies with a conflict-of-interest (for example, a business owned by a city councilor) are ineligible for grant funds.

If a business participated in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), are they eligible to receive CDBG-CV funds? Yes, but the CDBG-CV funds may not be used for employee salaries.

If a business participated in the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program (EIDL), are they eligible to receive CDBG-CV funds? Yes, so long as it is not a duplication of benefits.

If a business participated in the Hospitality Industry Relief Emergency (HIRE) Fund loan program, are they eligible to receive CDBG-CV funds? Yes. Because the HIRE Fund was funded with state dollars, there is no impact on a company’s ability to apply for and receive a CDBG-CV grant, as they are funded with federal dollars.

Is the purchase and installation of hand sanitizer stations or physical dividers/barriers in a business eligible? Yes. These items are considered working capital.

Are the Economic Development grants eligible for paying off existing debt from other sources including local revolving loan funds? No.

Generally, a church or school isn’t eligible for CDBG funds. If either has a food program or pantry, would they qualify? Yes. Churches and schools with food programs and pantries are eligible to apply through their city and/or county.

A local 501(c)3 runs the Meals on Wheels program, and they were not able to hold their major fundraiser because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Would they be able to apply? Yes. They would be an eligible recipient of CDBG-CV funds. The city and/or county would have to apply for those funds.
