CASA GRANDE — The city announced Wednesday the launch of a PPE reimbursement program for qualifying organizations with up to $2,500 available.

According to a press release, the city of Casa Grande is committed to supporting the local economy by launching the personal protective equipment reimbursement program.

“This effort financially assists local businesses, federally recognized nonprofits and churches that have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and have purchased PPE to help contain the spread of COVID-19,” the city said in a press release.

Back in August, the city launched CG Cares, which extended reimbursement up to $10,000 to qualifying organizations.

“This latest round of support may potentially extend up to a one-time reimbursement of $2,500 to those who qualified for that program but didn’t max out at $10,000 and to others that didn’t qualify but, now, may under this new program,” the city said in the press release.

Home-based businesses are excluded from this program.

According to the press release, to qualify, applicants must:

  • Be located at a physical, commercial address within Casa Grande’s city limits.
  • Have obtained a 2020 business license before Oct. 14.
  • Include their Internal Revenue Service “Letter of Determination” declaring tax-exempt status (if nonprofit).
  • Be current on all city accounts
  • Include qualifying itemized receipts dated March 1 to Sept. 30, 2020, along with an itemized summary of PPE purchases with a total dollar amount.

According to the city, all submissions will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those interested can apply from now until Nov. 13 at 4 p.m.
