State Announces More Small Business ‘COVID Grants
Gov. Jay Inslee announced on his Medium reporting page a new round of Small Business Assistance grants, similar to those given out early in the COVID phase.
The previous $5 million was quickly gobbled up and was enough to help 501 businesses. However, according to BusinessInsider.com, there are an estimated 608K plus such businesses in our state --whether they're a sole proprietorship or 2-3-10 people or more.
The new round is for $10 million, so if it proceeds as the last one, that means maybe 1,000 or so businesses could get some relief.
