The City is providing nearly $1 million in mini-grants to neighborhood and women-owned businesses affected by the coronavirus outbreak. The mini-grants range from $1,000 to $10,000. Our partners will review applications and give out the available funding.
We are giving grants to small businesses with less than $2.5 million in gross annual receipts. Your business must also have closed or seen a 25% decline in revenue during the coronavirus outbreak. Some neighborhoods will have additional criteria.

- Ocean View-Merced Heights-Ingleside (OMI)
The City and community partners have joined efforts to disburse mini-grants as a response to the urgent financial needs of women-owned businesses and small business owners in high need neighborhood commercial districts.
Many businesses are facing extreme business disruption or closure due to COVID-19. OEWD’s targeted areas lie within historically marginalized communities which will prioritize mini-grant funds to provide economic relief to family-run and owner-operated businesses.
