SAN RAMON, CA — Businesses and nonprofits in San Ramon are now eligible to participate in a free Business Assistance Program that aims to connect people with resources amid the new coronavirus pandemic.

Business Assistance Program staff will determine business owners' goals and help them find resources that can help them get there, the city said. Staff may even be able to help business owners resolve issues with applications.

Participants must fill out this form to prove that they are eligible for one-on-one triage appointments with the city.

The San Ramon City Council voted last month during a special meeting to execute a $22,500 contract with Townsend Public Affairs to create the three-month relief program. The program launched Monday.
