Fairport expands LIFT Grant program
The Village of Fairport Local Development Corp. LIFT Grant program has been expanded to provide cash assistance to village retail and restaurant businesses impacted by COVID-19.
The LIFT grant program was introduced in August 2020 to provide reimbursement for purchases of COVID-related supplies, services and renovations to enable businesses to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.
With the program expansion, retailers and restaurants in the village of Fairport that are forced to close due to required quarantine and isolation orders may be eligible for $100 per day, up to a maximum of $1,000, for each normally scheduled business day that the entity is closed due to COVID orders.
“We recognize the important role that our businesses play in making the village of Fairport a unique destination for shopping, dining and entertainment,” said Kevin Clark, FLFDC board chairman “This expansion will help our especially hard-hit village retailers and restaurants as they adapt to these ongoing challenges. The LIFE Grant program underscores our commitment to ensuring the future of the village of Fairport as a diverse and vibrant business district for residents and visitors alike.”
The program also will provide up to $1,000 to offset the higher costs of takeout supplies and third-party delivery fees incurred by village restaurants, officials said. More information can be found at fairportoced.org.
