International Falls – Koochiching County Commissioner Jason Sjoblom joined The Morning Show on Thursday to detail the ongoing application process for COVID-19 Business Relief Grants.

Commissioner Sjoblom reviewed the necessity of the relief grant – for which, $256,250 has been made available by the state of Minnesota.

While the deadline is Feb. 25th, Koochiching County has already received nearly 30 applications, says Sjoblom.

Though the COVID Relief Grants are earmarked for supporting small businesses, there remains a wide array of business types and reasons to apply for aid.

Sjoblom acknowledged that not all need is the same, and differentiated between businesses that need minimal, and maximum, help. Sjoblom stated that need is apparent throughout Koochiching County communities.
