Grant program coming to aid hurting Pasadena businesses
Monday, August 31, 2020
Pasadena business owners can vie for financial relief during the pandemic following the unveiling of a new grant program made possible through a partnership between the Pasadena Economic Development Corp., the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and the City of Pasadena.
The EDC recently approved funding to launch the Pasadena Cares Financial Assistance Grant program, which will tie into a citywide “shop local” initiative to promote locally based businesses in Pasadena.
“The Pasadena grant program will help so many ‘mom and pop’ businesses’ in our hardest hit areas,” said Mayor Jeff Wagner, who asked the EDC to devise a plan to aid local businesses.
