Here’s a quick update from the Capitol:
Additional Economic Relief for Families & Small Businesses is on the Way
Yesterday, Governor Walz announced a COVID-19 economic relief package to keep businesses afloat, support workers, and help families keep food on the table. DFL and GOP legislative leaders also announced slight differences in their relief packages, which you can review here.
I look forward to working with the governor and my House and Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle to deliver this much-needed aid. While state and local governments, including Hennepin County, are doing what they can to help businesses and families make ends meet, it’s clear we need federal assistance as soon as possible. In the meantime, Hennepin County is offering small business relief grants to restaurants, bars, gyms and event/entertainment venues that have suffered economic hardship due to the pandemic. Applications are due by noon Tuesday, Dec. 1. Apply today: https://bit.ly/39mlnHl
Shop Small Saturday
Our small businesses need our support now more than ever. If you’re planning on getting a jump start to your holiday shopping this weekend, please consider purchasing your gifts locally. Help is on the way, but until then, let’s show our small shop owners our support.
The Plymouth Arts Fair is now open. Shop online to purchase one-of-a-kind, handcrafted artwork directly from Plymouth artists. It’s a great way to support our community.
You can browse for vibrant paintings, chic handbags, custom woodworking, elegant jewelry, intricate baskets and more at plymouthmn.gov/artsfair.
Now more than ever, our Plymouth restaurants could use our help. If you’re able to take advantage of a takeout or delivery meal in the near future, you can find a list of eateries here.
