Applications for State’s Small Business COVID-19 Grant Program Open Wednesday

Starting Wednesday, small businesses in California can apply for grants of up to $25,000 through the state’s Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program.

The first round of grants opens at 8 a.m. Wednesday and closes at 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 8, with approvals announced starting Jan. 13.

Grant amounts will vary from $5,000 to $25,000, depending on the applicant’s annual gross revenue. Nonprofits are also eligible to apply.

The grants are part of the $500 million relief program that Gov. Gavin Newsom announced on Nov. 30.
