State Compensation Insurance Fund (State Fund), Californias leading provider of workers compensation insurance, announced today it has started accepting applications for its $50 million Returning California to Work COVID-19 Safety Protocol Fund. The fund will help State Fund policyholders implement new safety measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 as Californias stay-at-home orders are lifted.

Our return to work safety fund will help protect our policyholders, their employees, and their customers from COVID-19, said State Fund President & CEO Vern Steiner. By providing this support, were ensuring that businesses can afford to make the critical safety upgrades they need to reopen as stay-at-home orders are lifted. Thats good for the health of Californians and our economy.

The Returning California to Work COVID-19 Safety Protocol Fund was designed specifically for businesses who were not deemed essential under Governor Newsoms COVID-19 executive orders. It provides grants to qualified policyholders to help defray the costs of safety-related expenses, planned or already incurred, related to protecting their workforces from COVID-19. It covers costs such as goggles, masks, and gloves; cleaning supplies and services; and worksite modifications. Individual grants can total up to $10,000 or two times the policyholders premium, whichever is less. State Fund will continue to accept applications and award grants until the $50 million fund is depleted. Applications and fund details are available here.

Several weeks ago, State Fund launched a separate $50 million fund to support essential businesses. That fund is still actively accepting applications and more information is available here.

State Fund also offers guidance to all California businesses on re-opening requirements and how to establish a pandemic prevention plan on its safety resource site,
