Commissioner Levine Cava Leads Effort to Provide Assistance to Miami-Dade Businesses…

first_imgThe funding allocations include nearly $8 million in Community Development Block Grant funds and nearly $4 million in Emergency Solutions Grant funds derived from the federal 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. The legislation, sponsored by Commissioner Levine Cava, authorizes the County to use federal CARES Act dollars to provide direct assistance to local businesses and families. A small business assistance program will provide forgivable loans to businesses with 25 or fewer employees. The loans will be available for the payment of business expenses, including employee payroll costs. Businesses receiving the loans will be required to document job creation and/or retention, with the majority of jobs to be held by individuals with low to moderate income – those less than 80 percent of area median income. MIAMI-DADE – The Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners today (May 19) approved legislation to provide stimulus funding to local small businesses and direct assistance to families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the legislation provides substantial food and housing assistance for individuals with low to moderate income. Nutritional assistance funds will be available for an estimated 10,000 individuals in public housing that are income eligible and have not already received pandemic relief assistance for groceries. These are likely residents that lost their service sector jobs when COVID-19 caused the shutdown of the tourism and hospitality industry. Funds will also go towards homeless prevention and rapid re-housing activities.center_img “It is critical that the County be able to act quickly to get needed funding into the community to assist our small businesses – the backbone of our economy – and our most vulnerable populations that have been hit hardest by the pandemic crisis,” said Commissioner Levine Cava. “This legislation will enable the County to continue working with its community development partners to better meet the needs of our small business owners and our residents whose safety nets have been damaged.”last_img read more

Gutsy Atletico given hope after surprise win over Liverpool

first_imgMadrid, Spain | AFP | Liverpool were the victims of an old-fashioned Atletico Madrid masterclass on Tuesday as Diego Simeone’s side ground out a 1-0 win in Madrid to give themselves hope of reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.Saul Niguez raised the roof at a bouncing Wanda Metropolitano by scoring in the fourth minute before Atletico’s defence kicked in, suffocating the European champions and denying them a single shot on target.“Tonight is one of those nights you don’t forget,” said Simeone. “We haven’t gone through but we have beaten the best team in the world.”If Alvaro Morata had not slipped at the crucial moment, Atleti might even have taken a two-goal lead to Anfield, where they can expect an onslaught next month.“We are not 5-0 down,” said Jurgen Klopp. “We don’t think it will be easy but as long as we can get 11 players in Liverpool shirts we will give everything we have. And for all the Liverpool fans that can get a ticket — welcome to Anfield.”If Liverpool remain favourites to go through, the roar from the Atleti fans at the final whistle, aimed at their fist-pumping players on the pitch, suggested Simeone’s team now have belief.Few had tipped them to keep this tie even alive for the second leg given their own stuttering form, in contrast to Liverpool, unbeaten in the Premier League, and gunning for a treble.Jurgen Klopp said on Monday Atletico were a “results machine” but the temptation was to see his words as platitudes, not an accurate reflection of a side that sits 13 points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid and had already lost six times this season.Yet Atletico under Simeone have also become synonymous with upsetting the odds, just as they did when winning the Spanish title in 2014 and then twice reaching the Champions League final.For all their failings this season, they summoned that spirit here to produce a throwback performance full of tenacity, resilience and guts that was always going to be needed to give them any chance of success.Before the match, Atletico’s team bus had arrived at the stadium under plumes of red smoke. “We started to win the game when the bus came around the roundabout and we saw our fans,” said Simeone.He sprung a surprise by starting Thomas Lemar for the first time this year while Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa both returned from injury, the former from the start and the latter off the bench in the second half. – Atletico snapping at heels –Liverpool, who began with their expected eleven, have blitzed numerous opponents with explosive starts but they were the ones rocking early on as Atletico snapped at their heels, pressed hard and relished being first to every loose ball.They took the lead, aided by a hint of fortune as Liverpool failed to clear the corner and the ball cannoned back off the foot of Fabinho for Saul to stab in from three yards.On the sideline, Simeone beckoned his players to stay calm but they were celebrating in the corner while in the stands, the fans were delirious and given hope.Atletico were given a lead to defend and the rest of the half was largely a picture of Liverpool dominating the ball but failing to break down the 10 red and white shirts in front of them.Their best chances fell to Mohamed Salah but he passed Jan Oblak’s mishit clearance to the offside Firmino before sidefooting into an open net and then saw a deflected shot fly over.Oblak’s error came shortly after an equally unusual mistake from Virgil van Dijk, whose poor header might have proved costly, only for Morata to miss the chance from the angle.Sadio Mane, on a yellow card, was replaced at half-time by Divock Origi while Lemar made way for the more conscientious Marcos Llorente.Simeone could sense Liverpool’s momentum and he responded by frantically flapping his arms to demand more support.Salah drifted into space at the back post but headed wide and Atletico came through another spell of pressure unscathed. Morata should even have made it two but slipped when about to pull the tigger on Lodi’s cut-back.He was taken off with 20 minutes left, along with Salah, and Costa made his return shortly after to a wave of approval from the home support. The roar was even bigger when the final whistle blew.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
