Grants up to $25,000 support small businesses and nonprofits impacted by COVID-19 pandemic
The second round of applications for the California COVID-19 Relief Grants for Small Businesses will open at 8:00 a.m., February 2, 2021 and will run through 6:00 p.m., February 8, 2021. Applicants who submitted all necessary documents in the first round and met eligibility requirements, but did not receive a grant, do not need to reapply; their applications will be rolled over for consideration in the second round.
The CA Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program provides grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 to micro and small businesses and nonprofits that have been impacted by the pandemic. It is not a first-come, first-served program, nor a rolling approval process. All applications will be reviewed following the application deadline. Approval notifications will be on a rolling basis February 11-18, 2021.
Mission-based lenders and small business advisory and technical assistance providers will continue to assist small businesses with the application process in multiple languages and formats in the second round. Many of the State-supported small business centers, which prioritize the expansion of technical assistance to underserved business groups, will also be available to help.
