Business Resources


Waterford Township Local Business Covid-19 Assistance Program
Waterford Township is pleased to announce the Local Business Covid-19 Assistance Program. This program utilizes funds received under the authorization of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to provide mortgage and rent relief to small businesses within the Township up to $10,000. As secondary requests, the Township will also consider requests for inventory, supplies, furniture, software, and construction costs that would be able to further assist the abilities of our local businesses to operate through this pandemic. These secondary requests are limited to a maximum of $2,000.
 
Eligible businesses must be located within the Charter Township of Waterford and must employ at least one member of a low-/moderate-income household with incomes at or below 80% AMI. Assistance will be provided to businesses on a first come first serve basis until the allocated funds are exhausted or the assistance program is no longer found to be necessary.

Messages from Gary Wall, Waterford Township Supervisor

Thanking the Frontliners
As the number of cases of COVID-19 continue to increase here on our homefront, I would like to say "thank you" on behalf of all our community to our first responders, all of the physicians, nurses, health care workers, and all other essential workers serving our public needs. I know for a fact that many of these individuals are teaming up and working long hours away from home and their families to ensure that our safety, health and welfare is as best protected as can be.
