The result of an agreement between the County of Monterey and the Monterey County Business Council, Building Business Back helps businesses in Monterey County recover from the effects of the pandemic.

The Building Business Back website serves as an information hub to help business owners find grants, loans, workshops and other resources. We are collaborating with numerous other local business support organizations and offer services in English and Spanish. The BBB program serves all businesses in Monterey County, with an emphasis on those operating in unincorporated areas as well as those owned by minorities, women and/or LGBTQ+.

Our Vision

We help Monterey County businesses recover from the pandemic by offering resources, connections and support.

Our Mission

A flourishing Monterey County economy that lifts all.
