Kings County small business assistance program to run full course, rather than end early | Local News

The Board of Supervisors agreed Tuesday to extend the Kings County American Rescue Plan’s small business assistance program through an official end date of Feb. 1, 2023, rather than starting on Dec. 31 of this year.

The decision came after District 2 Supervisor Richard Weil expressed displeasure with the program after County Administrative Assistant Karia Martinez broke down the money allocated to each city through the grant program.

With $6 million in state money available to the county to help small businesses with up to $25,000 in COVID relief funds, Hanford received $2.2 million, Lemur $1,020,000, Corcoran received $840,000, Avenal received $540,000 And $1,320,000 was accounted for in illegal areas. .
