Emergency Microbusiness Assistance

The Emergency Microbusiness Assistance (EMA) program will provide grants up to $5,000 to microbusinesses (5 or less employees including owner) that were adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Microbusiness grants can be used for the following purposes: 

  • Rent/utilities    
  • Payroll    
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supplies required for business operation
  • Business services to increase capacity to carry out business activities (e.g. Point of Sale system, website development, etc.)

Business PPE Reimbursement

Fontana businesses adversely affected by COVID-19 are eligible for reimbursement of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  

Businesses must document that they have neither received nor will seek other grants, loans, or other assistance from any private, local, state, or federal funding source for the same uses as identified in the application. For example, if a business received the SBA PPP Loan for PPE Supplies, CDBG assistance could not be used for PPE supplies for the same supplies.
