A message from The County of San Diego
Hello OBMA Members
We would like to direct your attention to the County of San Diego's recently launched Small Business Stimulus Grant Program and encourage you to share with your members and networks.
According to the County News Center,
For-profit and nonprofit businesses can apply for grant money if they can show losses and costs are a direct result of the pandemic.
To qualify businesses must have:
100 or fewer employees
Headquarters in San Diego County
A minimum 1-year operating history as of Feb. 14, 2020
Documentation of financial hardship because of COVID-19
Board supervisors had approved using $17 million in CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Fund funds last May to help restaurants and small businesses. Tuesday, the supervisors approved the implementation of the program.
Businesses are urged to apply early. Applications are available now through Oct. 16 – subject to available funding.
