COVID-19 Response in San Antonio, Texas

"When the City of San Antonio needed help distributing $27M in COVID-19 relief to small businesses as quickly, effectively, and equitably as possible, I jumped at the opportunity. I worked with City staff, partner nonprofits, and community organizations to develop wraparound services to promote financial resiliency and wellness. As the child of small business owners, I understood how devastating COVID-19 has been for small businesses, and I saw firsthand how city government can marshal together the people and resources to offer meaningful support to their community."
