COVID-19 Small Business Grants

Since the pandemic began and stay-at-home orders went into effect, Commerce has provided emergency support to businesses through Working Washington and Resiliency grants ranging from $2,500 to $12,500. Round 1 used an allocation from the Strategic Reserve Fund and the emergency response fund. Funding for Rounds 2 & 3 as as well as the Resiliency Grant used CARES Act dollars.

A fourth round of the Working Washington grants is currently being considered by the Washington State Legislature.
