Led by Santa Clara County, the Enterprise Foundation will open the Microbusiness Grant Portal to eligible local businesses to apply for microbusiness grants from $2,500 each.

How to register

The application is available in English, Spanish or Vietnamese on AccessSBDC.org from 9 a.m. on Thursday March 17.

Who qualifies?

To be eligible for one of the $2,500 grants, a business must have been in operation in 2019, been negatively impacted by COVID-19, had less than $50,000 in total revenue in 2019, and had less than five employees. Applicants’ businesses must still be operating or planning to reopen in 2022.

About the Microenterprise Grant Program

In January, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors accepted approximately $2.4 million from the California Microbusiness COVID-19 Relief Grant Program to help microbusinesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is expected to provide subsidy relief to at least 875 microenterprises in two phases. This first phase will award 500 grants to qualified businesses on a first-come, first-served basis. The second phase, which will follow, will remain open for at least 45 days and all remaining grants will be awarded on a lottery system.
