San Diego has announced emergency relief grants for small businesses and nonprofits affected by recent flooding and storms. The Business Emergency Response & Resilience Grant will provide financial assistance to up to 100 businesses and nonprofits, with each eligible for up to $2,500 or up to $5,000 for those located in designated Promise Zone and Low-Moderate Income Census tract areas.

Mayor Todd Gloria emphasized the importance of getting neighborhood businesses back up and running for the community’s recovery from the devastation. The available grant funds can be used for eligible expenses such as supplies and labor for storm cleanup, repairs and equipment replacement not covered by insurance, employee wages, and insurance deductibles.

The funding for the program comes from a budget of $370,000 through San Diego’s Small Business Enhancement Program. To access the funding, business owners will need to demonstrate that they were impacted by the storm and have a current Business Tax Certificate on file with the city. Only businesses with 12 or fewer employees are eligible for the grant. The grants are intended to help ease the financial burden on businesses and nonprofits that were affected by the natural disaster, and the city is urging owners to start preparing to apply in order to receive funds as quickly as possible.
