- Round two of small business funding via the Cherokee Small Business Grant has been opened up early. This round of the program, which was originally slated for 2024, will see another $500,000 in grants awarded to small businesses around the county that have been affected by the pandemic. The application window for this round opens on April 17 at 8 a.m. and closes April 30 at noon, and eligible businesses can apply for up to $30,000 in grant funds, based on the number of staff employed.
