“Businesses have begun moving forward from the COVID-19 pandemic, however, there are still some needing support to fully recover,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “The Back to Business grant program has been vital to keeping doors open for thousands of small businesses across the state.”

In total, 124 small businesses in the 30th District have been awarded more than $5.3 million since the program started.

DCEO has provided $250 million in B2B grants – thanks to strong support from Senator Johnson – to small businesses throughout the state, with an emphasis on hard hit sectors, such as hotels, restaurants, bars, barbershops and salons, and disproportionately impacted areas.

“Support is critical to the health of our small business community, and I encourage all able to do so to shop and dine locally,” Johnson said.
