The application period for Round One of the California Small Business Covid-19 Relief Grant program is now open. Small businesses and nonprofits can visit and apply for micro-grants up to $25,000. Assistance is available in all counties and in multiple languages. The first round of applications ends Jan. 8, 2021. Grants will not be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

Take the necessary time to go to the website, and review eligibility requirements and the application process. If you are experiencing technical difficulties with the high-volume demand, connect with a local partner, ready your documents, and revisit during lower-peak demand times.

In a Dec. 30 press release, Governor Newsom said, “Small business owners and our nonprofits serve as the economic heart of every California community. This grant program isn’t the end, it’s the beginning. It’s a bridge to help the millions of Californians, whose dreams and livelihoods are now on the line, as we work with the State Legislature to create additional support.”

The California Small Business Covid-19 Relief Grant program, which opened on Dec. 30, offers inclusive, equitable relief to many small businesses and nonprofits impacted by COVID-19 and associated health and safety restrictions. Webinars are offered daily by SBDCs at 11 a.m. to introduce you to the application process – click here to register.

This program is not the end of the state’s assistance for small businesses and nonprofits. The Governor, Legislature, GO-Biz, and CalOSBA continue to work toward more support to help small businesses recover during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thank you for all that you do for our community and the economy.
