The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds were originally allocated to Yolo County and accepted for use by the City of Woodland at the Tuesday, November 17 City Council meeting.

Small businesses may apply for $500 per full-time equivalent employee (FTE) up to a maximum of $10,000 to assist with general business expenses such as payroll and sanitation. Independent contractors may also apply for up to $500.

In addition, small businesses may also apply for up to $10,000 in reimbursement of expenditures necessary to serve clients outdoors during the winter months, such as winterization or facility improvements.

A few documents will be required to apply: a W-9 form, a Woodland business license, payroll and revenue records, and evidence of financial need depending on the nature of the application.

Applications and program guidelines will be available in person at City Hall or online starting the morning of November 19th: Applications are due Monday, November 30 at 5:00 PM. The City hopes to support all qualifying applicants, but funds may be subject to award by criteria depending on the amount of applications. Applications and program guidelines will be available in both English and Spanish and can be submitted by applicants in either language.

To help provide application assistance and answer any questions about the Program, the City’s Economic Development team will hold an Information Session on November 23rd at 10am on Zoom – open to all Woodland small businesses. The information session will be held in English but individual assistance is available in Spanish.
