The Pend Oreille County Economic Development Council is accepting applications for emergency grants up to $10,000 each for businesses with up to 20 employees in Pend Oreille County. Grant money can be used to assist with a variety of expenses related to the impact of COVID-19.
A pool of $126,814 is available only to businesses in Pend Oreille County until funds are exhausted, and applications may close at any time.
Funding for the program is from the state’s Working Washington Small Business program including federal Coronavirus Assistance, Recovery and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds to help with COVID-19 response and recovery efforts across Washington State.
“The EDC is pleased to help out the community in distributing additional funding to businesses affected by the pandemic,” said EDC Director Jamie Wyrobek.
“The length and depth of the pandemic have hit small, main street businesses hard,” said Washington State Department of Commerce Director Lisa Brown. “In particular, restaurants, hotels and other service industries have not seen the expected number of customers. Small businesses need these resources to stay open as we respond to the public health crisis and help get people back to work.”
Commerce partnered with Pend Oreille EDC and the 34 other local economic development organizations statewide to make a new tranche of $10 million in Working Washington Small Business Emergency grants available. Applications and administration of the new funds are run by the local organizations that serve all 39 counties. The Washington State Department of Commerce is not accepting or reviewing applications, this will be done by the local economic development organizations. The information for these organizations can be accessed thru their respective website links below.
