"Thank you to the members of the Economic Development and Workforce Committee and City staff for the work they put into creating this plan.
These ARPA funds will help small businesses recover from the effects of the pandemic, and they should also help create the small business ecosystem that is necessary for our city to thrive.

San Antonio's economy includes 34,000 small businesses and should receive the same support that the City offers large corporations. This means investing resources and tools beyond emergency funds.
The goal should be resilience in the form of solid planning, organization, and internal structures that will help the business ecosystem weather the next emergency."
