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.  For additional information on the CA Relief Grant, please visit: CAReliefGrant.com

Visit the Small Business Administration’s website for more resources and information on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the loan program to help businesses keep their workforce employed during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Borrowers may be eligible for PPP loan forgiveness.

The Sima Spector Health Conference originated from Hadassah Women's Zionist Organization of America, this annual conference provides free quality health education and information to women of all ages and all ethnic/cultural backgrounds. Sima Spector organized and led the Hadassah "Healthy Women, Healthy Lives" Women's Health Conference in the Sacramento area from 1994 until 2006, when she was tragically killed by a drunk driver. During the past decade, the conference was renamed to honor her memory and her dedication to health education.

Presented by the Sacramento Chapter of HADASSAH and NCJW, Sacramento Section
