Hayward COVID-19 Small Business Resiliency Grant Program

DUE TO OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO THE GRANT PROGRAM, WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.

Due to an overwhelming response to the COVID-19 SMALL BUSINESS RESILIENCY GRANT PROGRAM, we are NO LONGER accepting applications. We received over 1,600 applications for the 76 available grants, with more than 500 applications in the first few hours of the application process being open. We are continuing to review applications and have begun to process award notices and payments for qualifying businesses. A full list of awarded grants will be published on this page in May.

We understand this crisis is disruptive to your business and regrettably are unable to provide assistance to all those in need. In the meantime, here are some resources for you and your business to consider:

  1. City of Hayward COVID-19 Updates and Response Information: The City of Hayward is in continuous communication with Alameda County Public Health about COVID-19 and will share any important updated on this page as well as our social media channels.
  2. City of Hayward Community Relief Fund: The City of Hayward established a Community Relief Fund to receive and direct charitable donations to sustain and protect local residents and businesses during the COVID-19 health emergency. This program may be offering additional assistance to businesses. Please continue to check this webpage for details on future programs and to learn how to become involved in the response effort.
  3. State of California Programs : The State of California website provides additional technical and financial assistance programs that you may find helpful. These include the California Capital Access Program, a loan loss reserve program which may provide up to 100% coverage on losses as a result of certain loan default.  The State Disaster Relief Loan Guarantee Program provides loan guarantees up to $1 million for small businesses in declared disaster areas.
  4. US Small Business Administration Programs: While currently the SBA is not taking Disaster Loan or Paycheck Protection Loan programs based on current Federal appropriation levels, these programs may become back online as funding becomes available and there are a number of other programs SBA offers that may be of assistance such as bridge loans and debt relief programs.
NOTE: For those that submitted application materials and were not awarded a grant, your personal information submitted will be properly destroyed to protect you and your business. If you have any questions, please email EconDev@Hayward-ca.gov or call (510) 583 -5540.

In an effort to support our small businesses and restaurants disrupted by COVID -19, the City of Hayward Economic Development Division developed a Business Resiliency Grant Program to provide funding to support operations and layoff aversion.

While we recognize that these funds will not make up for all of the financial loss experienced by our business community, we hope it provides some relief. There is a limited allocation of money. Awards will be granted on a first come first serve basis to those meeting the eligibility requirements.

Eligible Businesses:

All businesses with 25 or fewer employees and all independently owned restaurant businesses regardless of employee count.

Grant Award Amount:

$5,000.00. The award is a grant and is not required to be paid back. Dollars can be used for any aspect of the business.

Businesses receiving funding would be encouraged to:

  • Comply with Local, State and Federal guidelines for operating their businesses (social distancing, clean down procedures, limiting in-store occupancy, etc).
  • Prioritize delivery of food to seniors, economically vulnerable populations

Application Requirements and Process:

  1. Complete the Estimated Disaster Economic Worksheet 
  2. Complete a W-9 form for the business 
  3. Complete Preferred Payment Form
