The deadline for the first round of applications for the Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program was extended from January 8 to January 13, 2021 at 11:59 pm.

Along with the $500 million already approved for this program, Gov. Gavin Newsom is asking lawmakers for more money to help small businesses and cultural institutions affected by the pandemic. If approved, more than a billion dollars would be given to those hit hard by COVID-19.
