COVID Impact Business Grants

About the Program

Culturingua has partnered with the City of San Antonio to promote the Small Business COVID Impact Grants Program and provide in-person or virtual support with the grant application. This program provides grants to small business owners who continue to be impacted by the pandemic. The grants will range from $15,000 to $35,000 to eligible small, for-profit businesses. Additionally, businesses located in areas affected by certain construction projects may be eligible for an additional $10,000. The maximum grant amount is based on a reduction in gross sales between 2019 and 2021. The funds must be used for business-related expenses, including payroll, working capital, business rent, inventory, supplies, equipment, and other operating costs.

The application opens at 10:00 am on August 1st & closes at 4:59 pm on August 22nd.

How can we help?

As part of Culturingua's partnership with the City, we are offering 1 on 1 free appointments for small business owners for application support from July 26th- August 22nd.
