Meeting once again on zoom the council unanimously approved $153,000 in funding for Oneonta's Survive Then Thrive program.

The program is the result of a task force that was established to help ensure that small businesses did not falter during the forced shutdown.

The approved funding will be divided into three categories.

$3,000 will be budgeted for online sales promotions, while another $75,000 will go towards the reopening of small businesses.

The remaining $75,000 will go towards small business recovery.

Money for the funding will come from repurposed community development grant funds and possible FEMA aid.
