Support for Small Businesses, Workers and Community Organizations


The COVID-19 pandemic has precipitated an economic recession that has disproportionately affected micro-, very small, and small businesses, especially businesses owned and operated by people of color and immigrants, who are less likely to secure federal disaster aid or qualify for other loans or lines of credit to help weather the pandemic. So we’re funding a regional recovery fund, a transitional jobs program, childcare provider grants and even help for nonprofit arts organizations.

Total allocation: $171 million
