Small, family-owned Arizona businesses with three or fewer employees can apply for mini-grants under a new effort to help those facing challenges during the coronavirus pandemic.

Local First Arizona announced the initiative Friday that would cover costs such as employee payroll and rent.

SRP’s sponsorship is to benefit small businesses in its service area.
