Capital Access Group’s Board of Directors approved a grant to assist in fire recovery for small businesses in the affected North Bay counties. Rotary District 5130 will manage and distribute funds through their Business Grant Recovery Program.
Capital Access Group’s grant will aid small businesses—especially agricultural, retail, and home-based businesses—in re-establishing their operations and preventing them from closure due to losses suffered from the fires.
“The North Bay fires devastated many small businesses, affecting the business owners, their families, and the surrounding community,” said Jacklyn Jordan, President and CEO, CapitalAccess Group. “We are proud to partner with Rotary District 5130 to help rebuild the community and to give small business owners in the area the support they need to get back to business.”
The Rotary District 5130’s Business Grant Recovery Program provides grants of up to $5,000 based upon demonstrated need. The grants may be approved to replace inventory, equipment, tools, repairs, and anything else necessary to re-establish the business. Approved grants do not need to be repaid.
