Assistance for Small Businesses

Relief & Responses for Small Businesses

The Village will be among the first municipalities in the area to create a coordinated outdoor dining plan for Downtown restaurants named "Arlington Al Fresco." The plan helps restaurants to extend their outdoor dining areas by using portions of Vail Avenue and Campbell Street.                                                                                                                                                                                                            
Also approved is a plan for restaurants outside of the Downtown to utilize private property for expanded outdoor dining. Restaurants interested in participating in this program should complete the application for the Coronavirus Relief Outdoor Dining Application for Outdoor Dining on Private Property.

The Village Board also approved a Coronavirus Relief Package to assist businesses and residents financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. More details will be released soon.

We understand that our business community is facing an unprecedented economic disruption due to COVID-19, and we are here to help navigate through this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to email the Village’s Business Development Coordinator if you have any questions or call 847.368.5220.
