Grant money available Friday for Palm Beach County businesses

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — 60-million dollars all meant to help local businesses in need.

“Wow that’s amazing,” Michelle Lefkowitz said. That our county is stepping up that way, that our community leaders decided to invest that money into small businesses.”

Lefkowitz and her husband own Salute Market in Palm Beach Gardens. They’re grateful for the opportunity.

Palm Beach County received $260 million through the CARES Act. $60 million of that money is available for businesses big and small through the county’s Business Restart Grants Program.

The application process opens Friday at 8 a.m.

“We went through the checklist again to make sure we have everything. Because the first come first serve is going to make it a bit challenging,” Michelle said.
