A Success Story

In an effort to respond to the needs of the business community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID Compliant Business Partnership Program, the first of its kind in the State of California, designed to provide grant funding to small businesses and to encourage ongoing compliance with State health orders. The program provided nearly $30 million dollars total to over 6,100 small businesses who used the funds for rent, utilities, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and payroll expenses to keep their businesses afloat in the face of shutdowns and restricted patronage.
