Dear Lynnwood Businesses,
We know this past year has been incredibly difficult as our state responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many businesses have been forced to close or reduce their occupancy greatly. The good news is, we have moved into Phase 3 of the Healthy Washington Roadmap to Recovery, and more relief is on the way very soon. On March 29, the application portal for round 4 of the Working Washington grants will be open and we encourage you to get ready to apply!
Over the last year, the state Department of Commerce has connected small businesses with more than $125 million in grants to address the economic outfall of COVID-19. This effort continues with a new round of grant opportunities.
Working Washington Round 4offers grant relief funds to small for-profit businesses, especially those that were required to close due to public health and safety measures.
Priorities for funding are:
- Businesses required to close.
- Businesses with lost revenue as a result of closure.
- Businesses with added expenses to maintain safe operations.
- Equitable distribution of grant funds across the state and to businesses owned and operated by historically disadvantaged individuals.
Frequently asked questions are posted online, as is information about eligibility and required documentation
We encourage all Lynnwood residents to think local and help support our local businesses on their road to recovery!
