“An employee is defined as an individual who receives a paid wage or salary from which employment taxes (e.g. FICA, FUTA-Federal Unemployment Tax Act) and income taxes are withdrawn and remitted to the IRS, as evidenced by business tax returns filed. For purposes of eligibility, independent contractors (also known as 1099 employees) may not be counted as employees for eligibility. A company that solely employs independent contractors qualifies as a self-employed/sole proprietor applicant for this program. “

“Funds are provided as a grant. Repayment is only required if the grant agreement is violated or the County determines a duplication of benefits has occurred. Grants will be awarded based on the number of employees as of March 1, 2020, as outlined below, with a minimum award of $1,000.
