Business assistance rules differ by County Commission district

More than 450 local small businesses and nonprofit organizations that suffered losses from the coronavirus pandemic will be getting extra county financial assistance — above the $10,000 they received through the federal CARES Act.

But how the supplemental grant program will work depends on where they are located.

Under the initial countywide program, 1,342 small businesses and nonprofits received grants totaling $12.33 million. Of those, 1,024 qualified for the maximum grant of $10,000 because they had at least that much in combined lost income and increased expenses as a result of the pandemic.

Under a measure the County Commission approved in November, each of the five commissioners was allotted $5 million from the overall $105.03 million Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act allocation to designate for programs of their choice that came within overall CARES Act parameters.
