California Relief Grant Round 2


Round 2 for the California Relief Grant Program is almost here. Applications open on February 2nd, 2021 at 8:00am PST and will go through February 8th, 2021 at 6:00pm PST.

Approximately $237M in funding is being distributed in Round 1, with MORE funding to be granted in Round 2. Applicants who submitted their application and submitted all documentation in the first round do not need to reapply; qualified applications will be automatically rolled over into the next funding round for consideration. One complete application will qualify a business to be considered for both rounds, so they should only apply once.

Any eligible California small business owners that DID NOT apply in Round 1 can apply February 2-8 for Round 2. Round 2 approval notifications will be sent February 11-18.


California Relief Grant Train-the-Trainers

CAMEO is holding two webinars to talk about lessons from Round 1 and prepare our members and their staff for Round 2.

Join us TOMORROW, FRIDAY at 3:00pm PST and then on February 2nd at 2:00pm PST to take part in these trainers. We’ll concentrate on getting your clients ready: eligibility, setting up the technology, and the application. We’ll share best practices and answer your questions!
