We thank the Greenville County Council for their strong action to support our county’s small business community. The "Small Business Relaunch Program" will provide critical assistance in re-opening and navigating the new COVID-19 business climate. Dedicating $75 million to thousands of businesses shows that Greenville is truly open for business.
We are especially heartened by the specific allocation of at least $5 million dedicated to relaunching minority-owned businesses. These businesses are the heart of many communities in our area, and many of them were unable to access PPP and EIDL funding.
The strong support from all members of Council for our entrepreneurs indicates that Greenville’s business community will rebound strongly and can count on government as a partner as we move forward.
