COVID-19 Business Task Force
The County formed the Nevada County COVID-19 Business Task Force last spring to support our local businesses. At these meetings, County staff, in partnership with the Sierra Business Council, provide the latest updates on public health guidelines as well as vital information about available local, state, and federal resources such as grant and loan programs.
Small businesses are the heart of Nevada County and we will emerge from this crisis stronger together.
Watch the January 6th Task Force webinar. Includes an update on COVID-19 and information about federal, state, and local relief funding available to businesses. Hosted by Supervisors Dan Miller and Ed Scofield, with speakers from Nevada County and the Sierra Business Council. View on YouTube.
