In order to assist local businesses, especially those who’ve lost employees, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Thrive Allen County CEO Lisse Regehr informed commissioners that a new but “very competitive” grant opportunity had been made available through the CARES Act.
This grant could potentially supply $300,000 to the community “if awarded,” but requires additional measures beyond the application, including a community meeting.
Commissioners consented to help Thrive in moving forward, and interested parties (especially those that might have a stake in how the funds are allocated) are invited to attend the public hearing scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 19 in the courthouse basement assembly room.
