Supervisors approve mini-grant program
EL CENTRO — The Imperial County Board of Supervisors has approved a $500,000 mini-grant program intended to help local small businesses cope with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding will come from the county’s Public Benefit Program, which was established in 2012 and receives funding from solar projects in unincorporated areas of the county. That program is divided into the Community Benefit and Agricultural Benefit programs. Each of those programs will account for half of the mini-grant funding
