Emergency Funding is Welcome Relief for Arizona Small Businesses


Arizona State Legislature

House Speaker Rusty Bowers

Senate President Karen Fann

Thursday, August 13, 2020


STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Speaker Rusty Bowers and Senate President Karen Fann responded to the Governor’s decision today to release $10 million in emergency grants to assist Arizona businesses impacted by COVID-19 restrictions.

“Many Arizona businesses were shut down through no fault of their own as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These businesses remain under immense financial hardship, struggling to pay bills, keep their people employed, and to meet their customer needs while complying with the restrictions imposed upon them.

“Last week, we reached out to the Governor with our concerns over a lack of resources being made available from the Crisis Contingency and Safety Net Fund to help small businesses with rent and mortgage assistance. Today’s announcement that $10 million in new grants will be distributed is a great step forward in providing much-needed relief, and it is exactly why the Legislature acted to establish the fund earlier this year.”
