Small Business Relief

posted: August 1st, 2023

Tlingit & Haida has allocated $50,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to provide additional relief to tribal citizen-owned small businesses who are on Tlingit & Haida’s official voting list for the community of San Francisco and have been impacted by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Under the San Francisco Supplemental Small Business Relief program, tribal citizens who are at least 50% owner of a small business can apply for one-time financial assistance to receive a reimbursement of up to $5,000 for eligible business expenses or costs incurred due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Only one application per business will be accepted.

Funds must be expended in compliance with federal law and only those eligible expenses incurred after January 1, 2023 or reasonably expected to be incurred by December 29, 2023 are eligible. Applicants are required to follow the Purpose of Funds guidelines in the application.

Documented expenses previously used to apply for and receive relief assistance from another ARPA program are not eligible. All applicants will be contacted for assistance with any missing documents and to provide guidance during the application review.

Applications will be closed after 30 days of no response from applicant.
