Supporting local business

Nine Gloucester businesses were awarded grants totaling $31,677.37 through the Gloucester CARES Act Business Recovery Round 1 which ran July 14-17. The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors allocated $512,000 in funds provided under the federal government’s CARES Act to help local businesses impacted by COVID-19. This grant program was designed to reimburse the increased costs of changed business practices in response to the pandemic not including the normal costs of operating the business.
