SANTA CLARITA — The state community college system has granted $30,000 to a local small business center to provide long-term assistance to businesses still suffering from the Northridge earthquake, a city official said Monday.
Officials said that during the next three months, the center at College of the Canyons, at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, will offer free individual counseling sessions and 10 special workshops aimed at hundreds of local business owners who are attempting to recover from the temblor.
"Anybody who wants help should get in on this," said Gail Foy, city spokeswoman. "This counseling can help people get back on their feet."
The grant from the Chancellor's Office of California Community Colleges will pay for two additional workers at the center, which was jointly launched three years ago by the city and The Newhall Land and Farming Co.
