The CA Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program provides grants from $5,000 to $25,000 to eligible small businesses and nonprofits impacted by COVID-19 and the related health and safety restrictions. Lendistry has been designated by the state to act as the intermediary for the Program.
Visit CAReliefGrant.com see if you are eligible and submit your application. Extended application deadline through Wed 1/13/21, 11:59 p.m. PST.
Round 1 application period: 12/30/2020 through 01/13/2021 11:59 PM PST
Round 2 application period: TBA
The program is not on a “first come, first served” basis. We anticipate issuing grants in the following two (2) rounds of distributions:
Partners will provide technical assistance to business owners and nonprofits (to include translation/interpretation services) during application preparation and online submission. Once applications are received, Lendistry will process for eligibility. Once rounds close, grant awards will be distributed based on the program priority factors, including the COVID health and safety restrictions following California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, local county status and the new Regional Stay At Home Order which can be found at: https://covid19.ca.gov/safereconomy/.
Lendistry will distribute grants on behalf of the State of California to approved small businesses and nonprofits.
