Noblesville Announces Small Business Resilience Grant Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Mayor Chris Jensen announced today the Noblesville Small Business Resilience Grant program to provide up to $10,000 per grant to small businesses that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, based on demonstrated need.

The grant is focused on helping small businesses with unmet immediate needs such as maintaining payroll, paying rent and utilities, and covering other expenses to remain operational and serve customers and clients.

“Noblesville’s grant program will be focused on those businesses that may not be eligible for other assistance or that have immediate needs beyond that which can be met by other federal and state assistance programs,” Jensen said. “COVID-19 has impacted nearly every segment of our national and local economy. Due to required closures and other restrictions imposed to protect public health, many local businesses have experienced severe reductions in revenues. Small businesses are crucial part of the fabric of our community and we hope this grant will provide assistance and promote economic vitality within the city.”

The deadline to submit applications is close of the business day Friday, April 3. A second round of applications may be considered depending on available funds. The Noblesville Small Business Resilience Grant application and eligibility requirements are available here.

“Through prudent planning and conservative fiscal management, Noblesville has maintained a healthy Rainy Day Fund and cash reserve that can be utilized in precisely this type of circumstance – when we need to support some of our most important community partners to ensure restored hope for a brighter future,” Jensen stated.

Jensen said he is committed to going above and beyond to keep residents safe while at the same time reinvesting resources so that the local economy ultimately comes out of the COVID-19 crisis in an even stronger position.

Noblesville Mayor Jensen Declares Local Diaster Emergency

SymptomsNoblesville Mayor Chris Jensen announced today the declaration of a local disaster emergency as part of a multi-faceted strategy to address the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The executive order will be effective starting March 25, 2020.

“Issuing a local disaster emergency in Noblesville works in conjunction with Governor Holcomb’s stay-at-home order and strengthens enforcement here in our city,” Jensen stated. “I ask you only leave your home if you work at an essential business, are getting necessary supplies or must leave for health and safety purposes.”

Jensen is asking nonessential businesses to close and for residents to stay home and avoid unnecessary travel. This preventative measure to suspend in-person contact is necessary to avoid the spread of COVID-19, particularly in relation to individuals in higher-risk segments of our population.

Jensen has directed Noblesville police and fire departments to take reasonable action to enforce this order with the understanding that this is an unprecedented time.

“We understand this is a difficult time where business owners have to make sacrifices for the greater good, but the long-term health of our community far outweighs the short term prosperity of staying open for business,” Jensen said.

Grocery stores, pharmacies and other essential businesses will continue to operate. To view a full list of essential businesses and to view Gov. Holcomb’s Directive For Hoosiers to Stay At Home, click here.

Noblesville City Court has been suspended until May 2020. If you have a hearing, please contact the City Court at (317) 776-6344 or click here. All ticket payments may be made online, mailed, or placed in the drop box. 

The City of Noblesville government remains operational to continue to provide essential service to ensure the safety and well-being of residents. However, all city buildings will close. The city would like to remind the community that all permit applications, forms, and online bill-paying can be accessed or downloaded from the city’s website at
