Applications Open: CareLife Small Business Relief Grant Program:

The State of California is offering a grant program for small businesses impacted by COVID-19. Funds are awarded to underserved micro and small businesses in early 2021.

The 1st application round closes on January 13, 2021. Applicants should start receiving notifications on grant approval/disapproval after January 20, 2021 and funding should be received within 30 days after that.

The 2nd Round dates will be determined later, but if a business applied in the 1st round and was not awarded any funding, and was eligible, there is no need to apply for the 2nd round, as all qualified applicants will be rolled over into the next funding round for consideration.

To apply visit careliefgrant.com, click on the FIND A PARTNER button on the top of the screen – click on the BY COUNTY button and click on the MARIN button, then choose a partner and click on the Application button. The partner you choose will be able to assist you with any questions you might have.

The grant awards are as follows based on business income:

  • $1,000 - $100,000 = $5,000 grant
  • $100,001 - $1,000,000 = $15,000 grant
  • $1,000,001 - $2,500,000 = $25,000 grant

Businesses are allowed to apply for a lower amount than listed. For more information visit: https://careliefgrant.com/

 

 

New Look for our Data & Surveillance Page

Today, our epidemiology team unveiled an refreshed look for our data & surveillance webpage that provides a greater level of user table/graph interaction with access to the raw data. Our data webpage now uses Tableau dashboards to help visualize the impact of COVID-19 in Marin County.  Under each dashboard there are links to datasets available on Marin County's Open Data Portal. To learn more about how to use the features of these dashboards navigate to the "How To Use" section of our data page.

Refreshed tables include:

  • Key Indicators (cumulative case rates thus far)
  • COVID-19 cases and deaths
  • COVID-19 testing and percent positivity
  • COVID-19 hospitalizations
  • Demographics of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths
  • Demographic trends
