The City of Goleta, the Santa Barbara Foundation, and Deckers Brands established the fund.  Grants of up to $10,000 are being awarded. 

The businesses must be in Goleta, have less than 25 employees, and have seen a 25% dip or more in revenue due to coronavirus.  The deadline for businesses to apply for the relief through the Santa Barbara Foundation is this Friday.
