President Joe Biden’s new American Rescue Plan breaks down ways the administration plans to further help those hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Part of that $1.9 trillion plan is to include flexible grants to aid struggling small businesses.
Alex Minor, who represents Black Business Orlando, says continued aid is much needed, especially for black owned businesses.
Kirt Earhart, co-owner of Maxine’s on Shine, believes this is a promising continuation of what the previous administration started, plus a little more.
Both Earhart and Minor say grants will help, but it’s continued community support that will keep the lifeblood of business flowing.
