San Bernardino COVID-19 grant relief funds still available
Microbusinesses across San Bernardino County still have the opportunity to apply for the county's COVID-19 grant relief program.
The grant relief program is a partnership between Mastercard and San Bernardino County and awards microbusinesses with $2,500 grants to help offset business impact from the pandemic. The county defines a microbusiness as a company with less than five employees.
According to data from the county, 45% of local county businesses are microbusinesses, with 10% of those being minority-owned. Eligible companies and non-profits can apply for the $2,500 grants and use those funds to pay for things such as new equipment, renewal of local permits, and payment of business debt.
