Taste the AV

As part of the #PalmdaleCARES campaign, the City of Palmdale has invested over $2 million dollars to aid small businesses, and launched several new programs including Small Business Assistance Grants, Operation Jump Start, Palmdale Al Fresco, Take Me Home Tonight, and ShopPalmdale. These programs have helped support local businesses, keep more money in our community, and aid the local workforce during the pandemic.
