A Clarification on Small Business Assistance Program Administration Services and CARES Funding


The funds approved April 28, 2020 by the Bernalillo County Commission as the Small Business Assistance Program Administration Services will be awarded to organizations that assist small businesses with services such as counseling, training, technical assistance, and direction on finding funding.

These local organizations will have to prove that they have been effective in helping the business community, and the intent of this fund is to support the expansion and impact of their services. Once the county determines which organizations will receive funds, the Economic Development Department will then provide further information and direction.

The Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) funding from the federal government to Bernalillo County is not a direct funding source to local businesses. The county is working with our federal congressional delegation and federal agencies to clarify how the CARES funding can be spent. At this time the use of the funds is very limited in scope.
