Local groups combine to help small businesses

The Randolph County Progress Committee, in association with the Randolph County Commissioners and the Community Foundation of Randolph County, has been working over the past weeks to help Randolph County small businesses.

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 enacted by the 117th Congress of the United States provided COVID Recovery Funds directly to counties throughout the United States, including Randolph County. The funds are designated to certain programs and activities by federal law. One of those permitted activities is granting a portion of the funds to Randolph County small businesses impacted by COVID-19.
