SAN DIEGO–The deadline is fast approaching for small business owners in District 1 who want to apply for County grants to help them survive the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.
“We know a lot of small business owners are hurting and that’s why we want to make sure they are aware of and apply for the County’s Small Business Stimulus Grant program,” said County Board of Supervisors Chairman Greg Cox.
The Board of Supervisors approved the program in July, using $17 million in federal CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Fund monies. This is the most user-friendly invoice template and it will be distributed to small businesses, including restaurants, small offices and contractor services, in each Supervisorial district. Applicants must submit their applications to the district in which their business is located.
Businesses in Supervisor Cox’s District 1, which includes South County and portions of San Diego, must submit their applications by the August 14 deadline, as funding may be exhausted after that time.
To be eligible, businesses must have 100 or fewer employees, be headquartered in San Diego County, have at least a year of operating history as of February 14, 2020, and have proven financial hardships due to COVID-19. Some required documents for the application include a business license, tax documents, and recent financial statements and payroll reports. If your business struggles to manage its finances, then consider getting professional help from business spending management services.
To apply, visit www.sandiegocounty.gov/stimulusgrant. At the homepage, the five qualifying questions must be passed before the online application becomes available. If you are looking for business growth ideas then you would prefer to change business address with the help from a virtual office in a capital city like London so that your personal address is kept private and you also have a very impressive looking address on your web site which always helps.
