HAMILTON BUSINESS RELIEF FUND
A Hamilton Downtown Association Campaign to Help Local Hamilton, MT Businesses Weather the Economic Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The HBRF was set up by the Hamilton Downtown Association (HDA) to provide financial assistance to local Hamilton, MT businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The HBRF is open to all Hamilton businesses, not just those in downtown. HDA has setup a GoFundMe campaign where anyone can donate money to help local businesses stay afloat during this crisis so that once this is all over, they can continue operations and bring back employees who may have been laid off. Visit the donate page to make a contribution today!
Donated funds will be held by HDA and distributed directly to local businesses to help them weather the economic impacts of COVID-19. Potential uses include payment of mortgage or rent, utilities, insurance, or other business-related expenses. Businesses will access funds through an application process available on the apply for funding page. Applications for funding will be reviewed by HDA and, when approved, funds will be distributed to applicants immediately. If funds remain when businesses are once again fully operable, these funds will remain with HDA and be used to provide continued assistance to local Hamilton businesses.
The Hamilton Downtown Association recognizes that we have all been impacted in one way or another by the COVID-19 pandemic, some more than others. We ask that you please give as much as you are able so that Hamilton can continue to have vibrant and thriving local businesses when this is all over. If you are unable to give at the moment, we encourage you to continue supporting Hamilton’s local businesses by purchasing gift cards or patronizing (at a safe distance) those businesses that remain operational. We live in a special place, not simply for its beauty, but more importantly for the community support we share amongst friends and neighbors. Our hope is that we can all band together as a community to lessen the economic impacts of this crisis and preserve our cherished local businesses.
