Take Action on Infrastructure Bill

The U.S. Senate continues talks on a bipartisan infrastructure package this week. A weekend session has been scheduled and a procedural vote was set for Saturday.

Such an investment in infrastructure will not only stimulate our economy, it will stimulate entrepreneurship.

In a post-COVID economy, internet access through broadband and other key infrastructure improvements will be more important than ever. Under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, California would receive a minimum allocation of $100 million to help provide broadband coverage across the state.

Join us in calling for Congress to pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill that works for small businesses. Use Small Business Majority’s sample tweets and graphics to spread the word!


The CA Relief Grant Reopens

The California Relief Grant Program received an additional $1.5 billion injection following the signing of the 2021 State Budget.

The expansion will open three new funding rounds. Round 7, which is open from August 3 through September 16, is a closed round for existing eligible applicants who were waitlisted in previous rounds. These applicants do not need to reapply. An additional round for nonprofit cultural institutions starts on August 27. And new applicants can apply starting September 9 (stay tuned!).
