Small businesses across the nation have felt the financial impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.

While it has been difficult for many businesses to survive this economic crisis, additional assistance is on the way through the Mobile County Small Business Relief Fund Program.

 

The funding effort, spearheaded by Mobile County Commissioner Connie Hudson, is a collaborative initiative between the Mobile County Commission and the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce to provide funding to small businesses in Mobile County that are experiencing extreme hardships as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Eligible small businesses may obtain up to $10,000 in grants, based upon need.

“The COVID-19 crisis hit us all in a way that no one could have imagined,” said Commissioner Hudson. “Small, local businesses are the lifeblood of any community, and this crisis has left many of them in dire need of assistance. By making this relief program available, we hope to stimulate our local economy while promoting and retaining small businesses throughout Mobile County.”
