Small businesses can apply on the county’s website for grants ranging from $500 to $12,500 per business.
You can submit your application beginning Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 8 am. However, you can begin reviewing the application now and gather all the necessary documentation in order to be ready when the application period begins.
The County of Humboldt Small Business Restart & Recovery Grant Program (SBRR) will provide direct aid to independent, local for-profit businesses that have suffered financial hardship as a result of COVID-19. The funding will be made available on a first-come-first-served basis, so it is essential that businesses submit quickly.
There are two grant programs. The Restart Grant provides up to $500 for expenses related to drafting/submitting their business reopening plan. This grant is available only to those who have had their reopening plans certified and approved by the county. The Recovery Grant provides up to $12,000 to assist with COVID-19 related expenses, as detailed below:
Applicants must be a for-profit business whose business was or has closed, or whose operations were or are adversely impacted by COVID-19, and must meet additional criteria as detailed in the application materials.
The SBRR program will expire on Dec. 30, 2020 or until funding has been exhausted, unless otherwise extended through federal legislation.. Funding for this program is made available through the US Treasury’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).
