Small Business Relief Fund Grants

 The Corte Madera Small Business COVID-19 Disaster Relief Fund has been created in partnership with the Corte Madera Chamber of Commerce, and the County of Marin. The goal of this relief fund is to help small businesses sustain their operations as we continue to push through this pandemic and adapt to the mandates that have been put in place.

 Corte Madera understands that businesses have been largely impacted by COVID-19 and the limitations that have come about due to the necessary health and safety precautions the County of Marin has been taking through the Shelter in Place Orders. This relief fund is intended to assist qualified small businesses pay for immediate operational costs, including but not limited to rent, payroll, utilities and loan payments.

 In order to be eligible for a grant from this relief fund, the small business must meet the following qualifications:

  •  Operate in Corte Madera under a current, Town business license
  • Have had a Corte Madera business license for more than one calendar year
  • Have no more than 26 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees (not including business owners) in all locations operating under the same business name (the total should include FTE employees in all locations within and outside of Corte Madera) as of January 1, 2020
  • Not have an independent fundraising effort currently established (this includes GoFundMe) 

 At this time, home office-based businesses do not qualify. Additionally, independent contractors that share a physical location, whether it is a personal or business service, under a single name (e.g. a single salon or an architectural practice) do not qualify. However, the primary business operator can apply for a grant that if approved, would then have to be shared by all independent contractors sharing that physical location.

Please note that your business can be open or closed. As long as you meet the above qualifications, you can apply.  The Town of Corte Madera will allocate one grant of $1,000 per business, on a first come, first served basis. Applicants who previously applied for a Small Business Disaster Relief Grant offered by the Town of Corte Madera have the opportunity to receive a second grant but must submit a new application for review, no exceptions. Please note that priority will be given to applicants who did not previously receive a Small Business Disaster Relief grant from the Town of Corte Madera. All applications will be reviewed by the Administration and Finance Department after the close of the application period, June 1, 2020 at 5:00PM. If you have any questions about this program, please call Lorena Barrera at (415) 927-5086.
