The Benton Economic Partnership is pleased to announce it will launch a business assistance grant program by early Fall.  The BEP has been asked by Benton County to manage the County’s allocation of federal CARES funds to help County businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Watch the BEP website for announcements about grant applications, grant criteria and application deadlines.  Businesses considering applying should be prepared to document losses or additional expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  At this time the BEP has not determined the maximum amount it will grant eligible businesses.  Grant awards may be based on the number of applicants and the total pool of CARES resources made available by Benton County.

The Benton Economic Partnership is a 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2016 and brings together businesses, cities, townships, education, non-profits and the county to create a more prosperous Benton County.  Inquires can be directed to  Or call 320.968.6197.
