Business and Non-profit Help During COVID

Coronavirus resources for businesses and nonprofits in our community are available.


Funding Available for Salem Businesses Impacted by COVID-19: Since June 2020, the City has offered four COVID-19 business grants. Thus far, we have committed about $550,000 to 160 businesses and non-profits. These grants have helped businesses pay rent, payroll, inventory, and related expenses, as well as purchase temporary outdoor tents and heaters to expand customer seating through the winter months. No grant programs are currently available. To receive emails about COVID assistance,  email or call 503-540-2435.
