In collaboration with the community, the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce has announced the formation of a special grant initiative to assist local small businesses as they struggle to reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Called the Momentum Small Business Recovery Fund, the program is now accepting grant applications, according to Mike Griffin, Chamber president and CEO. Application deadline is Monday, June 1.
Griffin said the timing is right for the small-business outreach; plus, it points to the advantage of having a strong connection between the Chamber of Commerce and its members, as well as the entire Cleveland and Bradley County community.
To learn more on how to complete, and submit, a “Momentum Small Business Grant” application, go to www.ClevelandChamber.com. All completed applications must be received by June 1, 2020.

Cleveland State Community College is preparing for a full slate of academic classes for the Fall 2020 semester. Building on the great success the college had responding to the Coronavirus during the Spring semester, faculty are busy preparing courses for the next term.
Recently, the college surveyed returning students and new applicants about their interests in various teaching modes in light of the pandemic, such as face-to-face traditional classes, fully online classes, and hybrid classes.
Results showed that interest covered all of these areas, so Cleveland State is preparing to meet student interests while ensuring their safety while they are on one of the college’s three campuses across its five-county service area.
Faculty are busy this summer converting many classes normally taught fully on-campus to hybrid classes. To better meet social distancing guidelines, those on-campus sections will be split with half of the class meeting one day and the other half meeting another.
