ERLANGER, Ky. — City officials are launching Northern Kentucky’s largest relief program to help small businesses recover from the financial blow of the pandemic.
The city council approved the $1.2 million program amid worries that COVID-19 would have a negative impact on the city’s budget cycle. Despite the pandemic, the city’s revenues are up 7% this fiscal year over last.
The city is using CARES Act dollars, which it received from the federal government last year, to fund the program.
Erlanger officials reached out to Covington and Independence officials to determine the best business relief program model for the city.
