“Our small businesses and non-profits make Norman the unique community that residents and visitors alike enjoy. This past year we’ve asked so much of our small businesses and non-profits in order to keep our residents safe during these difficult times. I’m excited that we have the opportunity to offer them support as we continue our battle against COVID-19,” said Mayor Breea Clark.

The application is open to both for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations with 35 employees or less that are locally owned and managed, and located within Norman city limits. Additional qualifications are detailed on the first page of the application. Grants recipients will be selected through a blind ranking system based on information provided in the application. Additional supporting documentation may be requested before awards are distributed.
