The Town of Hartford, its Selectboard and its Business Revolving Loan Fund Committee understand the hardships businesses in town have suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown of the economy that was required to preserve the health of our community. In order to assist businesses in town to recover, the Town has made available $50,000 from the Hartford Business Revolving Loan Fund (HBRLF) to be given out as grants in the amount of $2,000 to businesses hard-hit by the pandemic.
