CICERO, Ill. — State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez, D-Cicero, is hosting two Back to Business (B2B) Grant Workshops. The first event will take place Friday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at her district office located at 6117 West Cermak Road in Cicero. The second will take place on Monday, May 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at 4209 Joliet Avenue in Lyons.

“Local businesses are still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent inflation, but fortunately there are many state resources available,” Hernandez said. “B2B grants are a great resource businesses can apply for to receive economic assistance for their recovery.”

The B2B grant program, conducted by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, provides recovery grants for businesses in the creative arts, hotel, and restaurant industries. Event attendees will learn more about the program and receive help with the application process as needed. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Hernandez’s district office at or (708) 222-5240.
