The latest small business support program created by the State of California is called the Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program. This is a $500 million grant program. The deadline for submitting Applications for the first round of funding has been extended to January 13, 2021.
In this particular program, small businesses and nonprofits are eligible for grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. Eligibility is based on revenue in the most recent tax return filed (2019 or 2018).
Applicants who submit their application and all documentation in the first round do not need to reapply when the second round of funding opens later in 2021.
This program will support both qualified small businesses and nonprofits.
