6 DAYS LEFT TO APPLY FOR COBI BUSINESS GRANT

More than 65 applications have already been submitted, and the deadline is looming to apply for up to $10,000 in small business grants.

A clarification on eligibility is that only businesses located in physical, commercial locations will be considered at this time.

The grant application portal closes on Sunday, Mar. 28th at 11:59pm.

WORKING WASHINGTON GRANTS OPEN ROUND 4 NEXT WEEK

These grants of up to $25,000 are focused on small businesses, especially those that were required to close due to public health and safety measures.

Priorities for funding are:
  • 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.

Online applications open March 29.
