Meanwhile, the Bernalillo County Commission approved a $5 million grant program for small businesses, utilizing funds distributed to local governments through federal CARES Act legislation. The program will offer grants of up to $10,000 to businesses with fifty or fewer employees; look for further information on eligibility and application in future Chamber communications.
