• Working Washington Grants: Round 4 application open now

    April 03, 2021
    Over the last year, Washington state has provided small businesses throughout the state 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 being managed by the Washington State Department of Commerce. The state Legislature approved $240 million for this latest round, making it our largest so far.
    Working Washington Grants Round 4 offers 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.
    The application portal is open now through 5 p.m. April 9 at www.commercegrants.com. Materials are available in 16 languages.
