Small Business Fund - APPLY NOW

Small Business Fund
Yesterday, Mayor Faulconer announced that Cal Coast Credit Union, GoFundMe and Qualcomm have each contributed $100,000 to launch a new initiative between the City, Cal Coast Cares Foundation and San Diego Grant Makers to encourage corporate partners and individual San Diegans to donate to the Small Business Relief Fund. The fund was created at Mayor Faulconer’s urging to provide financial assistance to small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The need is great and we remain committed to finding more support for San Diego businesses. Businesses who have not yet applied, still apply for these funds, but individuals can donate any amount and should consider giving to assist one another. Eligible, unfunded applications from the City's initial $6.1 million effort will be sent to SD Grantmakers for grant funding consideration.  Any businesses who have not applied can apply on the City's website at SanDiego.gov/sbrf before the application closes  this evening at midnight.   Please note that some of the criteria has been modified to allow for businesses with zero employees to apply. Awards between $1000 - $10,000 will be considered.  If you or your members have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Sean Karafin
