Several small businesses in Genesee County received some much-needed help.

Back in October, Genesee County announced plans to help small businesses with the Small Business Assistance program, which is funded through the CARES Act. This program was made to award eligible businesses with grants worth up to $10,000.

Of the businesses that were eligible, around $197,472 has been dispersed by Genesee County. This grant money can be used by these small businesses for a number of things. The funds can be paid towards reimbursement for supplies and inventory, payroll needs, rent and utility expenses, and more dating back to the start of the pandemic shutdowns in March of last year.
