Los Angeles-area small businesses are now able to apply for Facebook’s Small Business Grants Program. This initiative is part of Facebook’s pledge to offer $100M in small business grants worldwide.
To be eligible to apply, you must:
Be a for-profit company
Have between 2 and 50 employees
Have been in business for over a year
Have experienced challenges from COVID-19
Facebook is working with Ureeka, a third-party partner to select and distribute grants. Ureeka’s application will ask you to share your contact information, a brief summary about your business and how you would use the cash grant, for example to continue paying employees or help with rent costs.
To complete the application, you’ll also need at least one of the following documents:
Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN)
Proof of incorporation
Don’t delay! Applications are now open and will be available for two weeks. Read more program information from Facebook or begin your application.
