Round 2 of Microbusiness Grant Program Now Open

Sacramento County is launching the second round of grant funding for microbusiness owners who may have missed an opportunity to apply for a $2,500 grant in the first round. Applications for the Sacramento County Microbusiness Grant Program will be accepted from May 16 through June 14.

The Grant Program is funded by the State of California’s Office of the Small Business Advocate and administered by Sacramento County to assist microbusinesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Sacramento County launched the first round in April and awarded a total of $182,500 to 73 recipients. 

Microbusinesses can receive grants of $2,500 that do not need to be repaid. To qualify, microbusiness must receive less than $50,000 in gross revenue annually and has fewer than five full-time employees. An eligible business must also have been in operation by the end of 2019.  

Additional information on the Grant Program’s complete eligibility requirements, application, frequently asked questions and assistance is available on the Sac4Micro website.
