The City of Scotts Valley and Scotts Valley Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce a $250,000 Small Business Rent & Mortgage Assistance Grant Program. 

The goal of this program is to provide economic relief to small business in Scotts Valley that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Business selected to receive grants are required to use the funding towards qualified rent or mortgage expenses that have been incurred between April 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021. 

The City intends to make grant awards to as many businesses as possible. As an example, applicants must be a for-profit small business with 25 or fewer employees, operating in Scotts Valley with a brick-and-mortar store and have demonstrated financial need as a result of COVID-19. 

Keep an eye out for additional information and full eligibility requirements, including a formal launch of the grant application period and full program guidelines to be publicly introduced in December. As of now, the City anticipates grants to be paid to eligible businesses in January 2022.
