Program Summary

Información en español

To support small businesses and employers facing financial impacts and layoffs from the COVID-19 pandemic, the County of Solano, in partnership with the Workforce Development Board (WDB) of Solano County and the Solano-Napa Small Business Development Center, has established the Solano Microbusiness COVID-19 Relief Grant initiative.

This program will provide microgrants to small businesses experiencing economic stresses through funding from the California Microbusiness COVID-19 Relief Grant Program.

Solano County’s $450,000 funding from the California Microbusiness COVID-19 Relief Grant Program will allow the Workforce Development Board, on behalf of the County of Solano, to award approximately 180 business owners with $2,500 microgrants. 

Eligibility

Grants will be awarded based on eligibility guidelines established by the State of California.

For-profit microbusinesses are eligible for this grant if the business:

  • Is based in Solano County
  • Began operation prior to Dec. 31, 2019
  • Is currently active and operating or has a clear plan to reopen when the state permits reopening of the business
  • Was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Earned less than $50,000 in gross revenues in the 2019 taxable year
  • Has zero to five full-time equivalent employees
  • Had zero to five full-time equivalent employees in both the 2019 and 2020 taxable years
  • Did not receive a grant under the California Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program (through Lendistry)
  • Was not specifically excluded from participation in the California Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program
  • Can provide acceptable form of government-issued photo ID (state, domestic, or foreign) and documentation that includes the owner’s name per grant program guidelines
  • Owner must be the majority-owner and manager of the qualified microbusiness and this business must have been the owner’s primary means of income in the 2019 taxable year

Grant Details

The application window in Solano County will be open from 9 am on April 1 to 5 pm on May 14. Online applications are available in English, Spanish and Tagalog and can be accessed at solanonapasbdc.org.

Grants will be awarded based on eligibility. If necessary, a randomized lottery will be conducted to select the 180 eligible small businesses that will receive grant funding.

All grant recipients must self-certify that grant funds will be used for one or more of the following permissible activities:

  • The purchase of a new certified equipment including, but not limited to, a cart
  • Investment in working capital
  • Application for, or renewal of, a local permit including, but not limited to, a permit to operate as a sidewalk vendor
  • Payment of business debt accrued due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and related health and safety restrictions, or business interruptions or closures incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic

Due to federal funding, selected employers must attest to Certifications and Assurances and complete the contract process before funds may be dispersed. Entities receiving an award may be subject to local or state monitoring.

The grantee list will be announced on June 1, 2022, with disbursement of funds between June 1 and August 31.
