The Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation (SACHCCF) and the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SACHCC) is pleased to announce their partnership with Sacramento County to distribute grants totaling $50,000 in direct economic support to small business in Sacramento County.
ACCESO Sacramento seeks to provide assistance to already struggling businesses recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. Though small, this grant can bring some stabilization to these businesses and Sacramento’s economic base affected by the pandemic.
Eligible businesses may use these funds for general business operations, payroll expenses, supplier payments, rent, lease, or mortgage payments for the business property, personal protective equipment and/or sanitation supplies and equipment, investment in software or technology to maintain online operations, or the purchase of equipment to expand or modify operations.
Funds may also be used for the cancellation of debts due to the establishment going out of business. Applicants are NOT required to be members of the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
Each award is a one-time grant ranging from $500.00 to $2,500 provided the business meets all eligible criteria. Priority will be given to unincorporated areas of Sacramento County. Eligible applications will be considered in order of submission, location priority, and until funds are exhausted. Click here to check if your business is in an unincorporated area.
All applications will be reviewed by SACHCC staff for completeness and eligibility. Applicants will not be notified if an application is incomplete.
