Eligible small businesses and nonprofits in San Diego that were affected by the Jan. 22 flood can now apply for emergency funds. The application window will remain open until Feb. 27, and the Emergency Response and Resilience Grant has a budget of $370,000. This grant can offer up to $2,500 for small businesses and $5,000 for small businesses and nonprofits located in low-income areas.
To be eligible for the grant, business owners must demonstrate how they were impacted by the storm and have a business tax certificate on file with the city. Only businesses with 12 or fewer employees are eligible for the grant. The city advises business owners to keep track of all expenses related to storm recovery, as replacements not covered by insurance, employee wages, and insurance deductibles may be eligible for reimbursement.
This grant aims to provide financial assistance to small businesses and nonprofits that suffered damages and losses during the Jan. 22 flood. Interested parties are encouraged to apply before the Feb. 27 deadline in order to access these emergency funds.
