With all the craziness going on in our world these days, it's nice to get some positive news.

According to WILX, the City of Lansing announced phase one of its small business recovery programs, along with Lansing's economic development corporation.

The city issued several COVID-19 rescue fund grants to local businesses. A total of 34 businesses are being sustained by the rescue fund grant.

This couldn't have come at a better time than now. So many businesses have been struggling ever since the coronavirus pandemic took over. It's nice to know that things can work out in a positive manner.

By the way, many of these businesses said that they wouldn't be open right now if it wasn't for the City of Lansing's Small Business Recovery Program.

They announced that 34 businesses in danger of going out of business received $10,000 to combat the loss of revenue.

All 34 business owners said they couldn't believe it and that they are very grateful.

Other local businesses like Personal Image Salon and Spa and 1910 Food Market received grants as well.
