On December 4, 2020, Governor Newsom announced a new $500M grant program to help California Small Businesses and nonprofits impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants can range in amounts from $5000 to $25000.

Qualifying businesses must apply for grants no later than January 8, 2021.

I encourage all small businesses and non-profits to see if they can qualify and immediately submit their applications before it is too late. Please do not miss this opportunity to help your business, your employees and Menlo Park.
