Pasadena COVID-19 Disaster Small Business Relief Fund 

The Pasadena Community Foundation announced today the launch of the online application portal for the Pasadena COVID-19 Small Business Relief Fund. The application portal will go live at 5:00 pm today, Friday, June 26th, and will accept applications through July 10, 2020 5:00 pm.  The small business relief fund is a collaboration between the Pasadena Community Foundation, City of Pasadena and Chamber and will provide grants to Pasadena-based storefront retail and restaurant businesses.

The Pasadena COVID-19 Disaster Small Business Relief Fund will prioritize business owners who have not received financial assistance from federal and state-level COVID-19 relief programs, including the Paycheck Protection Program. Businesses must be located within the physical boundaries of Pasadena. The selection process will consider ownership and whether the businesses employ Pasadena residents. Once awarded, grant funds may be used for business-related operational costs, including COVID-19-related expenses and re-opening compliance costs.
