  • City of Concord Measure V Commercial Rent Relief Program

    Program Overview
    The Measure V Commercial Rent Relief Program will provide a one-time grant of $10,000 to small businesses that have experienced adverse financial impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded by Measure V sales tax revenue, the program will provide commercial rent relief to 95 small businesses within the City of Concord.

    Participation by both the commercial tenant and landlord are required. Small businesses with at least $10,000 in commercial rent arrears accumulated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and that meet the eligibility requirements, may apply. Commercial rent relief will be paid directly to landlords.

    The application period will open on Monday, April 26, 2021 at 8:00 am and close on Friday, May 14, 2021, at 5:00 pm.

    The selection process will consist of an initial screening of applicants based on priority criteria, followed by a lottery should the number of qualified applicants exceed the amount of funding available.

    The City of Concord and Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce are working together to administer this program. All businesses that meet the eligibility requirements are welcome to apply. Chamber members will not receive priority.
