The Loomis Area Emergency Rent Relief Fund provides grants of up to $5,000 to cover rent and utilities for eligible small businesses financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As well as assistance to wineries who are eligible for $1,500 for production supply reimbursement costs from Dec-March (bottles, corks, etc).
The Loomis Area Emergency Relief fund is not first-come, first-serve. We will strictly follow the criteria detailed below. We have $155,000 to allocate to our Loomis Area Businesses that have been most affected by this pandemic. Submit the application by February 5. We will determine grant recipients by February 10, 2021.
We will focus on allocating money to those in dire need first, then allocate the reaming funds if any is left over. (Priority to those that have not received any grants thus far)
