About the Marshall Resiliency Grant

The City of Marshall and Marshall Economic Development Authority recognize the financial burden on the City’s restaurant, fitness/recreation facilities, and entertainment venues. Therefore, the Marshall EDA has established the Marshall Resiliency Grant Program. The grant program will provide funds to City of Marshall restaurants, fitness/recreation facilities, and entertainment venues that have been restricted or closed by Executive Order 20-99 and have suffered economic loss during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Program will distribute grants to eligible local businesses to provide cash for short-term financial operational needs such as payroll, payment to suppliers, payment to service providers, payment of utilities, or rent, but not limited to these. Eligible businesses must submit a narrative of funding needs during the application process.

All applications are due by Monday, December 28th at 4:30pm. The review process will begin, Tuesday, December 29th and awarded through a lottery system.

The Marshall EDA will be dispersing grants up to $2,000 to qualifying local restaurants, fitness/recreation, and entertainment facilities with a fund total of $100,000. To be considered an eligible business to receive the Grant, businesses must meet the following requirements:
