The first round of the grant was awarded to 84 small businesses on May 20, 2020.

The grant can be used for salary, benefits, rent, and other operating expenses.
A total of 85 applications were submitted, and 42 were eligible for the grant. Eligibility included being located in the City, having gross receipts of $50,000 to $700,000 (an increase of $200,000 from round one of the grant), having 50 or fewer employees, and more.
