Additional Resources for Small Businesses
California Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program. A comprehensive package that speeds much-needed relief to individuals, families, and businesses suffering the most significant economic hardship due to COVID-19.
The Program provides a crucial financial lifeline to traditionally underserved small businesses and non-profits. The recently signed package provides $2.075 billion – a four-fold increase to that initial $500 million – for grants up to $25,000 for small businesses impacted by the pandemic. The new package also includes a $50 million allocation for non-profit cultural institutions. Four competitive funding rounds are conducted by the California Office of Small Business Advocate’s (CALOSBA) selected intermediary, Lendistry.
