Clay County EDC Works with EDCKC on CARES Grants III

November 2020

The Kansas City EDC has opened up the third phase of CARES grants for Kansas City businesses in Clay County. They will distribute twelve, $30,000 grants. The deadline to apply is Nov. 30.

The first two phases began in July, and totaled $2.7 million in grants to 70 Clay County businesses, ranging from $5,000 to $50,000.

For this latest grant, EDCKC has partnered with the city of Kansas City and the Clay County Economic Development Council to extend this critical assistance to small, for-profit businesses deemed “non-essential” and/or disproportionately impacted by public health restrictions such as retail, personal care or hospitality-oriented businesses.

Applications for the third phase of Clay County CARES Act grants will be accepted through Nov. 30 and grant recipients will be contacted with further information on Dec. 4. Learn more at
