Newsom’s Council of Economic Advisors; and ex officio on the Governor’s Task Force on Jobs and Competitiveness about how the California Rebuilding Fund is focused on helping small businesses—especially minority-owned small businesses—recover, rebuild wealth, rehire their workforce and support our local economies. The webinar also included a presentation about how small business owners can learn how the fund works and how other local business owners have benefitted from the program.
