The City of Grover Beach has awarded about $350,000 in covid-19 relief funds to 49 local businesses.
So far, the city has distributed more than $600,000 to 70 Grover Beach businesses this fiscal year to help with the financial impacts of the pandemic.
Priority was given to businesses most impacted by the state's most recent stay-at-home order.
That includes personal care services, restaurants and gyms.
“I am so pleased that our city has taken this immediate action to help Grover Beach businesses in this time of need,” said Mayor Jeff Lee. “The City is committed to working with local businesses and the Chamber to weather the financial impacts from public health requirements intended to keep our community safe through the covid-19 pandemic.”
Each business will receive up to $7,500 in one-time financial assistance.
