$620k in grants awarded to small businesses | #ESC_LLC #Business #Grants #COVID19 | Toledo’s Emergency Microenterprise Recovery Grant program still has $380K to allocate (13 Action News).
A Peruvian restaurant, a hair salon, and a store that sells saltwater fish all have one thing in common. They all received money through Toledo’s Emergency Microenterprise Recovery Grant program, known as EMRG.
“We were thinking (we would have) to close everything, but right now, we are here trying to grow again,” said William Del Rio, who owns Chosica Peruvian Restaurant on Hill near Byrne. The grant money has helped to keep his restaurant open during the COVID-19 pandemic.
