August 31, 2019
Supervisor Zack Scrivner is pleased to announce that the RENEWBIZ program will be awarding $380,000 in grants to East Kern community businesses. A total of 46 grants were awarded to 15 businesses in Boron, 14 in Mojave, 11 in Rosamond and six in Tehachapi.
The RENEWBIZ program begins with county seed money, but continues with matching efforts of the business owners and community leaders who work together to improve and beautify the business environment, clean-up the community and attract new businesses, tourism and economic development.
"RENEWBIZ has been an extremely successful program. Since creating the program in 2013, we have awarded nearly $1.3 million in grants to East Kern businesses. The latest round of 2019 grants continues to build on our commitment to help restore and revitalize the business areas of East Kern so that they, and the surrounding communities, may further grow and prosper," said Second District Supervisor, Zack Scrivner.
