1st Lake County Small Business COVID Recovery Team Meeting 12/28, 1pm, via Zoom

California Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program Application Period is 12/30-1/8
LAKE COUNTY, CA (December 24, 2020) – Imagine Lake County without the small businesses we love and rely on.  Think about your favorite restaurant, the family birthdays celebrated within those walls.  Recall the youth sporting event where your son or daughter made a key play; a local business supported the costs of their uniform.  Consider the relationship-defining moments shared over a Bartlett Pear salad and bottle of Lake County wine, and the conversations you’ve had while seated on a couch purchased from a local shop.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a complex and fast-changing business environment and added innumerable layers of financial and procedural complication.  We all want to do what we can to help, and that includes your local governments.
On Monday afternoon, December 28, Supervisors Bruno Sabatier and Eddie Crandell, representatives from the County of Lake, Cities of Clearlake and Lakeport, and other business community stakeholders will convene the first meeting of the Lake County Small Business COVID-19 Recovery Team.
Positioning Lake County businesses to take advantage of COVID-19 relief funding opportunities that emerge is a matter of priority.  Monday’s Agenda will include discussion of a potential 2nd round of Federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding. 
Another such opportunity is the California Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program, a $500 million funding opportunity offering grants of up to $25,000 for eligible businesses with annual revenues of $2.5 million or less.  Businesses are strongly encouraged to prepare now to start applying at 6am Wednesday, 12/30.  The application period ends 1/8 at 11:59pm.  Informational Webinars are available daily, at:
