State Treasurer John Schroder and District. 34 Sen. Katrina Jackson were in St. Joseph last Wednesday to encourage Louisiana business owners to apply for up to $15,000 in grants from the CARES Act to help them recover from COVID-19 related expenses.
“Our small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and they’re hurting because of the financial impact of COVID-19,” Schroder said. “I encourage every small business owner to visit our website, take the eligibility quiz and apply if they meet the requirements. We don’t want our businesses to close. We want them to thrive.”
