REDDING, Calif. - The Redding Chamber of Commerce has money on hand to help small businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Covid-19 Relief Grant Program for Micro-Enterprise Businesses will give $5,000 to about 140 small brick and mortar businesses.

In order to qualify, a business must have five or fewer employees, must operate within Redding, Shasta Lake, or Anderson, must have been hurt by Covid-19, and not have received a PPP loan of other SBA disaster funding.

“It will help us with the overhead expenses of electricity and rent,” said Jeff Engell, owner of Crown Photo and Videos. “It will help us with some advertising cost that we need to help get the word out there.”

“Since the beginning of the pandemic we've found what businesses need the most is cash,” said Erin Hull, Director of Marketing and Membership for the Redding Chamber of Commerce.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is supplying the money for the grants. Close to $700,000 dollars will go to Redding, $62,000 will go towards the City of Shasta Lake, and fund amounts for Anderson have yet to be determined.

Businesses can apply for the grant until July 31, Click Here to apply.
