Regarding Status Report on the Small Business Grant Program for COVID-19 Protective Measures, Phase One by the County of Santa Clara, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. By last Thanksgiving, 302 small business grants were authorized for a total of $708,300.

Winners expressed their appreciation for the County Supervisors for their support and our assistance. They provided heart-breaking stories among the heart-warming and success stories. All in all, it was a touching and impactful experience.
