MADISON, Wis. — Today, Governor Tony Evers announced an additional investment of $25 million more into the Main Street Bounceback Grant Program, which has helped businesses fill vacant storefronts in every county in Wisconsin. Assembly Democratic Leader Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement in support:
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, Governor Evers has time and time again proven his commitment to making sure that Wisconsin’s small businesses have the resources and tools they need. By investing an additional $25 million dollars into the Main Street Bounceback Grant Program, Gov. Evers is delivering real relief for more than 4,200 businesses in all 72 counties in the state.
“This program has been invaluable for many businesses and nonprofits in Racine. I am particularly excited to see the positive impacts that recipients will bring to our community, like the nonprofit Racine Revitalization Partnerships Inc., an organization dedicated to supporting historically under-funded neighborhoods with work, housing, and commerce initiatives.
“This investment will continue to support the on-going investments in our communities to bounce back from this pandemic. I look forward to seeing more businesses utilize this critical funding in Racine and across Wisconsin.”
