Steve Chirico, the mayor of the City of Naperville, said, “The City of Naperville has found ways to help small businesses throughout the pandemic.”

The City will choose the recipients of the grants by using a lottery system. This Grant program is funded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES).
