(Victor Valley)– The County of San Bernardino has announced an extension of the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program with increased funding amounts to businesses and adjusted eligibility criteria.
A business or nonprofit with no more than 100 employees and that has been in business prior to January 1, 2020, are now eligible to receive the funding, providing they demonstrate continued compliance with State health orders and incorporate safety and social distancing practices and measures in their business operations.
The amount funded for these operations is now $5,000 for an initial location and $2,000 for each additional location, with an additional amount of $2,500 for any business that is relocating operations to outdoors. For business partners that participated in the program earlier this year, they will receive additional funding to bring their total allotment to these new levels. Short-term rentals and private schools are not eligible for the additional funding.
Interested businesses that have not previously applied have until Dec. 13 to apply for the funds. For those who already applied, for the moment there is nothing you need to do. The County will contact you in the very near future to coordinate the additional funding.
