A new COVID19 resource to support our small businesses here in Solano County is being provided by the Workforce Development Board of Solano County. This grant has established a new Layoff Aversion Fund that small businesses can use for the following purposes:
- Purchasing remote access equipment or software that allows employees to work from home rather than being laid off (e.g. computers, printers, telephones, headsets, video conferencing, etc.)
- Paying for services or tools for restaurants or retail establishments to convert to online sales or delivery, during Shelter at Home orders.
- Purchasing cleaning/sanitation supplies and/or services that will allow an essential small business to maintain an on-site workforce.
- Other creative approaches and strategies to reduce or eliminate the need for layoffs.
