The Greene County Commission announced Tuesday they have awarded over $750,000 to local businesses in their first series of awards.
In a release Tuesday, the commission revealed a total of $760,000 awarded to 57 business throughout the area, specifically for small businesses with less than 50 employees.
The funds were allocated by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The commission has a total of over $56 million in funds to be awarded before December 31, 2024.
Presiding Commissioner Bob Dixon says the commission chose to assist small businesses first because, “the Commission believes that our small businesses are the foundation of our community’s economy.”
