San Diego City offers flood recovery funds to small businesses and nonprofits

Businesses and nonprofits in San Diego that were affected by the Jan. 22 flood can apply for emergency funds to help them recover. The Emergency Response and Resilience Grant has a budget of $370,000 and is open to small businesses and nonprofits until Feb. 27. Eligible businesses can receive up to $2,500, while those in low-income areas can receive up to $5,000.

To qualify for the grant, business owners must demonstrate how they were impacted by the storm and must have a business tax certificate on file with the city. Only businesses with 12 or fewer employees are eligible for the grant. The city advises business owners to keep track of all expenses related to storm recovery, as replacements not covered by insurance, employee wages, and insurance deductibles may be eligible for reimbursement.

The grant aims to provide financial assistance to small businesses and nonprofits that suffered damages and losses during the Jan. 22 flood. Interested parties are encouraged to apply before the Feb. 27 deadline in order to access these emergency funds.
