City of Rio Rancho - Small Business Assistance Program

**The City will begin accepting applications on June 1, 2020.**

The City of Rio Rancho has developed an emergency relief package for small businesses and micro-enterprise businesses located within the City of Rio Rancho that are in jeopardy as a result of COVID-19 public safety measures. This program is funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development CDBG program. Assistance is in the form of a performance grant. In the event that conditions established in the grant agreement are not met, the grant then becomes a loan at zero percent interest. Based on unprecedented requirements for social distancing, businesses have seen a dramatic decline in revenue.
