Business and Community Engagement for
Economic Prosperity in Pomona
There is the very important issue of economic recovery within the City of Pomona that requires the engagement of the whole village. I share three projects designed to maximize revenue opportunties in our recovery in Pomona. If managed correctly, these projects greatly benefit our local economy and the quality of life for our residents. The success of these projects depend on us having the full breadth of our diversity at the disucssion table. Briefly they are as follows:
1. TCC a.k.a. Pomona ACTS – see link below for details on how this $200,000 planning grant that has been awarded to the City of Pomona, could turn into a $39M award for our local economy;
2. Pomona’s Open For Business – concentrating a percentage of institutional purchasing powers’ spend toward Pomona-based businesses.
3. President Biden’s Relief Package: Between $51M – $46M in relief funding from President Biden’s relief package is coming to Pomona; ensuring the priorities of local business and community relating to the spend of these monies are heard – is paramount – as these monies arrive.
