California’s Office of the Small Business Advocate (CalOSBA) announced today there will be four new funding rounds for the CA Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program. This announcement follows Governor Newsom signing into law a comprehensive package that includes relief to individuals, families, and businesses that have experienced economic hardships due to the pandemic.
The recently signed package provides $2.075 billion – a four-fold increase to that initial $500 million – for grants up to $25,000 for small businesses impacted by the pandemic. This package also includes a $50 million allocation for non-profit cultural institutions. Four competitive funding rounds will be conducted by CalOSBA’s selected intermediary, Lendistry.
