Michelle Steel congratulates City of Cypress for timely and efficient allocation of CARES Act funding

Today, Michelle Steel, Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, was given notice by Rob Johnson, the Mayor of Cypress, that the city had allocated a total of $1.1 million (or 97%) of its CARES Act funding to 152 of its small businesses, with every qualified business that applied receiving support.

“I am so delighted to hear that the CARES Act Funding that I granted to the City of Cypress has been allocated to its small business community in such a timely and efficient manner. I am proud of my partners in the City of Cypress, especially Mayor Rob Johnson, who have prioritized assisting the small businesses of their city,” said Chairwoman Steel. “Small businesses are the lifeblood of Orange County and I cannot express how happy I am to hear that so many of these business owners will be able to keep their doors open because of this financial assistance was distributed so quickly and efficiently.”

Mayor Johnson further informed Chairwoman Steel that the remaining $36,000 would be distributed to more small businesses shortly.

    1. Chris,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      It is my understanding that the City of Cypress plans to recognize those businesses at some point in the future.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.
