Supervisor Doug Chaffee Distributes Grants to Small Businesses and Non-Profits in the Fourth District
Santa Ana, CA – Today, Supervisor Doug Chaffee has distributed millions of dollars in grants during three rounds of funding to small businesses and non-profits in the cities of Brea, Fullerton, La Habra, and Placentia and portions of Anaheim and Buena Park through the Fourth District Small Business Grant program.
After its announcement, the Fourth District Small Business Grant program received hundreds of grant application submissions. Once the administrator of the grant program, Main Street, selected eligible grant recipients, a check in the amount of $5,000 - $10,000 was mailed to the business’ or non-profit’s mailing address.
"Applicants ranged across many industries including food and beverage, health and wellness, arts and entertainment, and business and professional services,” said Supervisor Chaffee. “We know struggling small businesses and non-profits of all types need the money now.”
A few businesses and non-profits that received a $10,000 grant included the Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center, the Brea Chamber of Commerce, the Boys & Girls Club of Brea – Placentia – Yorba Linda and Tlaquepaque Restaurant.
The Muzeo Museum and Cultural Center is a state-of-the-art museum in the City of Anaheim, hosting three traveling national and international exhibitions each year in its main gallery with interactive elements, video screens and self-guiding audio podcast tours.
The Brea Chamber of Commerce connects the local businesses, service organizations and all levels of government to create an interconnected business community and environment that fosters collaboration and increases capacity for advocacy and influence.
The Boys & Girls Club of Brea – Placentia – Yorba Linda Boys & Girls Clubs supports youth through before and after school programs, activities during school breaks, summer camp programs, weekend sports, and more to become responsible caring citizens and acquire skills contribute to Club and community.
Tlaquepaque Restaurant, a family-owned restaurant named for a vivacious little town famed for its foods, crafts and Mariachis in Guadalajara, opened in 1965 and adopted its name from there because the City of Placentia and The City of Tlaquepaque had a sister city exchange at the time. Tlaquepaque Restaurant takes pride in recreating that same festive atmosphere with their authentic cuisine and colorful murals depicting the family’s heritage.
“Many of these businesses and non-profits have applied for the Paycheck Protection Program or SBA’s EIDL, but they were denied or the funds just aren’t coming fast enough, so I’m proud that the Fourth District Small Business Grant Relief program could be there to provide them financial assistance,” said Supervisor Doug Chaffee.
