Governor Newsom announced a package of assistance for small businesses impacted by COVID-19, including sales tax relief (click here), $500 million in grants, and an additional $12.5 million added to the California Rebuilding Fund. If you are a small business or nonprofit interested in the $500 million grant program, the California’s Office of the Small Business Advocate is working quickly to establish the program; for updates please sign up here. While there are limited details on the new grants posted on that website, the sign-up link is your best way to stay on top of that opportunity.
