SMALL BUSINESS GRANT PROGRAM
Orange CARES for Business
Orange County’s CARES Act Funding for Small Businesses will invest $72.9 million into Orange County small businesses. The distribution of funds is through two programs: (1) the Small Business Grant Program; and (2) the Micro-Grant Program for Home-Based Businesses.
Available funding is limited and assistance for both programs is “first-come, first-serve.” Both grant programs are strictly limited to businesses located physically within Orange County. Funds can only be used to reimburse the costs of business interruption caused by COVID-19 pandemic provided those costs are not paid by insurance or by the federal Payroll Protection Program (PPP). Financial assistance provided pursuant to either program shall b
e provided at the County’s discretion. When reviewing applications for financial assistance, the County will use its discretion to determine whether providing such assistance to a business would violate the spirit or intent of the provided program criteria or any related funding limitations.
