ore than $250,000 in CARES money was awarded to small businesses in Platte County during another round of small business grants approved by county commissioners.
The latest grant approvals came at a meeting held Monday, Sept. 28.
Platte County received $12.2 million in federal CARES money through the state treasurer’s office several months ago. The state treasurer had asked the county to give $6 million to the City of Kansas City, based on the fact that half of Platte County’s population is comprised of residents who live within the city limits of Kansas City.
