The City of Elkhart is looking to establish a grant program to help small businesses recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ashley Elsasser, the city’s assistant director for economic development, said local businesses have struggled to compete with large delivery services and ecommerce companies during the pandemic. 


She said the Small Business Innovation and Adaptation Program would help level the playing field.
