Economic Alliance and Lynnwood offer new business grants

The grants are derived from the federal Coronavirus Assistance, Recovery and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Economic Alliance Snohomish County will oversee a new grant program to help support small local businesses.

The emergency grants are available to county businesses that employ up to 20 people.

Grants will be awarded in two amounts — $5,000 for firms with 10 or fewer employees, and $10,000 for companies with 11 to 20 employees.

Funding comes from the Working Washington Small Business Emergency Grant program, including federal Coronavirus Assistance, Recovery and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds.

A pool of $580,000 is available for for-profit businesses in Snohomish County.

Economic Alliance is accepting applications now through Monday.

For information on eligibility and how to apply, go to bit.ly/3hS1fgs.

The Washington State Department of Commerce is partnering with Economic Alliance and 34 local economic development organizations statewide to make a new round of $10 million in small business grants available. Application and administration of funds is managed at the local level.
