Rebuild Solano's Small Businesses Grant Program

In an effort to support small businesses and employers facing financial impacts and layoffs from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the County of Solano, in partnership with the Workforce Development Board (WDB) of Solano County and the Solano Small Business Development Center (SBDC), has established the Rebuilding Solano’s Small Businesses Grant Program.

Utilizing $2 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds, this program will provide microgrants to Solano County small businesses who are experiencing economic stress related to the pandemic, with the goal of preventing layoffs or closures and allowing small employers to effectively pivot operations in response to COVID-19.

The application window opens Tuesday, Sept. 15. Applications will be accepted until all grant funds have been distributed. 

Eligible applicants include for-profit businesses who are:
- Based in Solano County
- Have 50 employees or less
- Are in good standing with the State of California and the County of Solano
- Can demonstrate a need for funding due to the impacts of COVID-19
