La Promesa de Greenville | Greater Greenville Pledge
As Greenville takes its first steps toward a phased reopening, one of the priorities for our city is to help local businesses get back to work as quickly and safely as possible. The Business Recovery Task Force, a collaboration among the Greenville Chamber, City of Greenville, Greenville County and Greenville Area Development Corporation, has been working with business owners to better understand their needs and find ways to assist. Hispanic Alliance is grateful to be of service by helping translate sections of this page and finding existing resources in Spanish.
