Orange CARES Small Business Grant

Orange County’s Small Business Grant Program will invest $72.9 million into Orange County small businesses. The Program will allow approximately 6,500 qualifying small businesses access to $10,000 in grant money to cover normal business expenses, including employee wages, vendor bills, and rent to help offset the temporary loss of revenue due to COVID-19. Federal Cares Act provides the funding for this County program. The application period opens June 8, 2020. For a full list of criteria and required documents, learn more via Orange County.
