Financial Aid To Calaveras County Businesses Hurt By COVID

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA – Calaveras County businesses that were negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic can get a financial shot in the arm on a first-come first-served basis.

The County has received a federal Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $786,294 to assist with the response of continued economic challenges due to the virus. Eligible county businesses can apply for a COVID-19 Business Relief Grant.

Businesses that opened in 2020 may also be eligible for funding, according to county officials. They detailed, “Businesses must demonstrate they have been financially impacted as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Grants will be structured in three tiers with awards of $15,000, $30,000, or $50,000 based on net losses and need.”

The county provided this breakdown of how the funds will be distributed using a formula that categorizes businesses organizations into 3 tiers:

  • Tier 1 = Businesses with net revenue loss of $30,000 or more and/or more than a 20% net revenue loss.
  • Tier 2 = Businesses with net revenue loss between $15,001 to $29,999 and/or more than a 10% net revenue loss.
  • Tier 3 = Businesses with net revenue loss between $5,000 to $15,000 and/or more than 5% net revenue loss.
