Launched in July, the Palmview CARES Small Business Program was created by the Palmview City Council utilizing $100,000 in CARES Act funding allocated to the city to assist small businesses located in Palmview who were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Providing some relief to our local businesses allows us the opportunity to keep our economy going, as loss of business can affect employment, taxes, and livelihoods,” Mayor Pro-Tem Linda Sarabia said. “The City of Palmview remains committed to helping our community through this crisis through available resources and programs such as this, and we are proud to have provided this funding to help so many of our Palmview businesses.”
The awarded recipients received grants of $1,500, $3,000, or $5,000, depending on eligibility criteria. With funding from the program, eligible businesses can use the grant for operating expenses such as employee payroll, mortgage or rental lease payments, utilities, and other eligible expenses.
