The City of Grover Beach approved another $150,000 for local businesses struggling with the economic impacts of the pandemic.

Business owners can apply for a one-time $5,000 grant until Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Applications will be reviewed by a panel and checks will be distributed by late January.

City officials are working on implementing this program by February, similar to the program in San Luis Obispo.
