|California Small Business Covid-19 Relief Grant program applications opened December 30, 2020. Thousands of small businesses have already applied, and The California Department of Small Business Advocates are aware that with this large application volume, many small businesses are experiencing delays or challenges with the application portal. |
If you are experiencing technical difficulties with the high volume demand today, please circle back to the application portal.
The CA Relief Grant program is not setup as first come, first serve and will not close early, so if you face technical issues during the process, the application can be submitted for first round consideration any time between now and January 8, 2021 at 11:59PM. Webinars are offered daily by SBDCs at 11 A.M. to introduce you to the application process – click here to register.
Lendistry is working quickly to improve access issues. Please take the opportunity to go to the website, review eligibility requirements and the application process to ready your documents and connect with a local partner.
Know that the program is not the end of the State’s assistance for small businesses and nonprofits. The Governor, Legislature, GO-Biz and CalOSBA continue to work towards more support to help your small business recover during the COVID-19 pandemic.
