“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.”
