The City of Tampa plans to spend another $1.2 million to help approximately 580 small businesses that previously didn’t qualify for aid. While businesses must be located in the City of Tampa city limits, the previously required geographic zone parameters for Phase I & II are not applicable in Phase III. Phase III will start with businesses that were disqualified during Phase I or II but still in need of financial assistance.
$2,000 checks will be delivered directly to “critically impacted” businesses to help them aid in business expenses. Critically impacted businesses are businesses that had to close or experience a significant reduction in revenue over the past few months due to COVID-19.
