    To support small businesses during the COVID19 pandemic, the Washington State Department of Commerce has developed The Community Small Business Resiliency Grant Program.

    Commerce’s intent is to award each eligible applicant the maximum award available up to $10,000, based on the number of applications. HOWEVER, if the award per applicant would be less than $4,000 based on volume of eligible applicants, the applications will be reviewed and scored to determine award.

    The Community Small Business Resiliency Grant Program is available to eligible* small businesses licensed in Washington State. Businesses must have been in operation since March 1, 2019 and have no more than 20 employees. Grant funds can be used to cover working capital shortfalls due to COVID-19 hardship.*
