City of Goleta to Support Small Businesses Through Loan and Grant Assistance Programs

As part of its first steps towards economic recovery, Goleta City Council approved two new programs targeted to help Goleta’s business community during these challenging economic times. While the programs are not live yet, small businesses located in the city of Goleta will have the opportunity to apply for either a loan up to $20,000 or a grant up to $10,000. Once the programs begin accepting applications, the City will share on its various outreach platforms. If you would like to be added to an email interest list, please email Dominique Samario at

For more information about the two business support programs, you can read the report that was presented to City Council on July 7, 2020, here.
