The San Diego County Board of Supervisors Tuesday unanimously approved $4.1 million in grants to help 760 small businesses in District 3 affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The North County district — which includes several coastal cities and a dozen communities within the city of San Diego — is represented by Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, whose spokeswoman, Itica Milanes, said that there were 1,140 requests for federal CARES Act grant money.
Milanes said businesses receiving grants include restaurants, hair and nail salons, small retail boutique stores, dental offices, art and music stores, gymnasiums, and personal and professional services companies.
At their Sept. 15 regular meeting, the supervisors also approved millions of dollars in CARES grants for the four other districts:
- District 1 (Greg Cox): Roughly $3.9 million, which will be distributed among 506 businesses.
- District 2 (Dianne Jacob): $4.1 million, for 254 businesses.
- District 4 (Nathan Fletcher): $2.5 million, for 493 businesses.
