Recipients for COVID-related loss grants announced

Non-profit groups and businesses that suffered financially during COVID-19 had an opportunity to recoup some of those losses, through a grant program set up by Plumas County. Through the program, the county provided grants of up to $10,000 to non-profit and for-profit entities with 25 or fewer employees based in Plumas County. The funding was made available through the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. Plumas County allocated $540,000 of its ARPA funds for this purpose with $270,000 being allocated to each of the two categories.

During the board’s July 11 meeting, County Administrative Officer Debra Lucero announced the number of grants awarded and in which supervisorial district. She also provided a list of the individual recipients to the supervisors. One of those recipients, Amy Carey of Carey Candy Co./Bell Lane Baked Goods spoke during public comment and thanked the board for the opportunity. She is using the funding to construct an ADA-approved restaurant in her business and said that the plans have already been submitted and approved.

One thought on “Recipients for COVID-related loss grants announced

  • Once again tax dollars in the form of grants returning to Plumas county. Look at all the businesses that are in Jeff Engels district that are benefiting from these grants. What poor representation we have. Hopefully people will remember Jeff bragging he’s never written a grant. Without grants this county would have fewer businesses and far less services.
