The state of California announced a $500 million grant program to help small business. The program is being administered by the nonprofit institution Lendistry.

To help, we have an on-demand webinar that you can watch on your own time to learn more. You can also reach out to us for assistance with the application process!

Our number one tip is this grant application isn’t first-come, first-served. You need to make sure it’s in before Jan. 8 at 11:59 p.m., but make sure it’s complete and accurate. Head here you’re ready to apply.

There are also live webinars daily at 11 a.m. with offerings in languages other than English. Sign up here!
