Sacramentans have until Dec. 30 to access a wide variety of City CARES Act funded resources designed assist individuals, families and businesses during the pandemic.
The Dec. 30 deadline has been set by the federal government, which provided the City of Sacramento with $89.6 million in coronavirus relief funding.
“There are only four weeks left to access these vital resources that can help uplift our community during this pandemic,” said Mayor Darrell Steinberg. “We encourage all Sacramentans to access these programs immediately. Even though these CARES Act funded programs need to completed by Dec. 30, the City remains committed to inclusive economic development, workforce development and to small business and creative economy recovery.”
Since the onset of the pandemic, City officials and staff have been working to help residents, businesses and organizations affected by the coronavirus by launching or expanding approximately 70 assistance programs and services.
City residents and businesses impacted by the pandemic can access these free resources until Dec. 30:
- Find workforce training programs for youth and adults that provide general job readiness, on-the-job training, paid-internship opportunities and direct job placement.
- Apply for free home internet services from Comcast Internet Essentials for two months and/or a hotspot device with free internet service for a year.
- Access free one-on-one consulting for small businesses and virtual events from business experts.
- Utilize the tenant-landlord mediation services for renters impacted by COVID-19.
All of these resources are available on the City’s COVID relief website, which also offers free financial COVID-19 navigation services, pandemic toolkits, health signage for businesses, online activities and programs for youth and more.
