ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Having put aside $10 million in COVID-19 help cash, the city of Albuquerque has the ability to give $10,000 awards to 1,000 distinct organizations.
Yet, that many still can’t seem to come calling.
With two of three application windows previously shut, the city has gotten 823 applications for awards intended to enable independent ventures to hurt by the pandemic. The mass – 611 – came in the primary application wave in October, city Economic Development Director Synthia Jaramillo told the Albuquerque City Council Monday night. Another 212 showed up during a second application window.
Organizations actually have one greater occasion to apply; the third and last application window runs from Dec. 7-11.
Councilor Brook Bassan – who, with Trudy Jones, proposed the program – said she anticipated considerably more interest, yet stresses that organizations have been too occupied basically attempting to get by to search out this sort of help.
“I thought doubtlessly we would get at any rate 1,200 applications,” she said in a meeting. “I didn’t think it would have been that hard to get (that degree of interest).”
The committee affirmed the $10 million in September and this week slackened some program prerequisites.

The city is utilizing its government CARES Act Covid help financing to pay for the awards, and the subsidizing must be utilized by Dec. 30. Should the program not exhaust its $10 million, unspent cash would return to the national government.
A city representative said authorities actually hope to get all the cash out.
Jaramillo told the gathering the city is as yet attempting to audit the applications that showed up in the initial two cycles.
As of Monday, the city had given 97 awards and affirmed another 42, she said.
To qualify, organizations must have 50 or less full-time representatives (or the low maintenance same), have current business enlistment with the city and have been in activity for in any event a year, among different prerequisites.
