City of Fullerton Small Business Emergency Assistance Program
The City of Fullerton has created the Small Business Emergency Assistance Program which will provide funding to small businesses in need of financial assistance to overcome temporary losses of revenue due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The program is based on the availability of funds, program guidelines and submission of all required information and supportive documentation.
Small businesses located in commercial or industrial spaces within the City of Fullerton employing ninety-nine (99) full-time, or full-time equivalent employees (two part-time equal one full-time employee) may be eligible to receive assistance of up to twenty thousand dollars ($20,000). Funding is provided in the form of a loan that will convert to a grant in November 2021 provided certain conditions are met by the recipient.
Funds received through the Small Business Emergency Assistance Program may be used to cover day-to-day business operating expenses such as rent, lease or mortgage payments, payroll, inventory, and utility expenses. Funds may also be used toward the cost of obtaining personal protective equipment or devices intended to enhance safety of the business, staff, and customers.
