Bolt Creek Fire Financial Aid Grant

Closes today, 1/20/2023 at 5:00 PM

The Bolt Creek Fire caused financial harm from Stevens Pass Resort to Monroe. The Sky Valley Chamber of Commerce has coordinated private fundraising events that have raised $18,000 with our partners Economic Alliance of Snohomish County, Coastal Community Bank, Boeing, PSE, Angel of the Winds Arena, Crosswater Community Church, and Private Donors. We intend to distribute these funds to businesses that apply and can document a loss. We know it’s small, but we hope it will help.

We have also worked with other agencies, Snohomish County DEM, the City of Monroe, the Department of Commerce, Small Business Administration, Washington Emergency Management Division, and the Governor’s Office to get our area designated a Disaster Relief Area which will open our businesses to low-interest SBA loans https://disasterloanassistance.sba.gov/.

We are still hoping to find grants that can help as well. 

Deadline: 5:00 pm January 20, 2023

Documentation Required:

Profit & Loss statement September 10 to October 21 for 2021 and 2022 reflecting a minimum of 25% reduction.

Must have a Washington State Business License

Sultan Farmers Market


The Sultan Farmers Market was started in 2021 by a group of locals who wanted to create a community venue to showcase all the farmers and artisans in the Sky Valley.


Every week the market brings all fresh and locally produced and handcrafted items. 


Our Youth Market weekend is the First Saturday of the Month; young entrepreneurs, ages 8-18, are offered a discounted rate to join the market to sell their goods in a safe, fun environment.
