TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — On the last day of 2020, Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey is showing optimism in the COVID response for the new year.

City leaders secured more than $30 million of federal grant money through the CARES ACT as part of the pandemic response in 2020.

They also provided more than $1 million in grants for small businesses.

Dailey told ABC 27, 2021 means continuing to focus on the health, safety and welfare of people in the Capital City through further economic support.

"Moving into the new year the city of Tallahassee has taken action and is watching closely those that might lose their house or due to eviction and so we have put together a program at the city of Tallahassee to assist those individuals in need," said Dailey.

The city also developed a homeless task force to help manage services for those in need.
