Orange County COVID-19 Layoff Aversion Support Fund Program
In breaking news, the California Employment Development (EDD) funded $700,000 to Orange County’s Workforce Development Board (OCWDB) in partnership with the Orange County Community Services- Community Investment Division. These funds have been put into the COVID-19 Layoff Aversion Support Program to help small businesses within the Orange County area mitigate layoffs and follow federal and state health orders, such as “social distancing”.
This program only has an application window from May 21 through May 28, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. or until 170 applications are received. Awards will be maxed out at $10,000 per employer, and the amount you receive will be decided by a review committee.
There are requirements for employer eligibility, application documents needed, allowable/prohibited activities regarding awarded expenses, and reporting expenses quarterly up to a year after the awarded funds are given.
