New Program for Small Business of 10 or Less Employees

If you are a staff of 10 or less, the Governor of Washington announced a special grant program for the state’s smallest businesses. The grant program will be administered by the state Department of Commerce.

The link can be found here

The program is called the “Working Washington Small Business Emergency Grant Program.” There is $5 million available and grants will be $10,000 or less. It can be used for rent, utility bills, supplies, inventory or other operating expenses.

I encourage you, if you meet the basic requirements listed, to apply. If the web page is down, please continue to check back, as demand is expected to be great.

I hope many of you will benefit from this program.
