Round 2 of the Save Our Small Businesses Grant program is now CLOSED.

Drawing from both local and federal funding, the City of Fresno has to date invested a total of $2,750,00 in grants and microloans in our community’s small businesses so they can start to bounce back from the COVID-19 crisis.

After a random selection, recipients of Round 2 funding have been notified of their grant awards and given instructions for documentation they must submit before the final distribution of funds.

Prior to disbursement of funds, each recipient must provide qualifying documentation that meets the requirements of the CARES Act:
