County grants business relief

Butte County has begun distributing $4.7 million to 310 small businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The grants from the Butte Business Stabilization Program—funded through the federal Coronavirus Relief Fund (part of the CARES Act) and administered by 3CORE—range from $15,000 to $25,000 per business. The money can be used to make up for losses due to temporary business closures, loss of sales revenue and expenses to reopen safely.

Fifty-one businesses have received grants so far, including Aonami Sustainable Sushi, Schroer Dairy, Upper Park Clothing and Growing Oaks Preschool.

Steve Lambert, chairman of the Butte County Board of Supervisors, said in a press release that the board hopes these funds “ease some of the pain” that businesses have experienced during the pandemic.
