COUNTYWIDE SMALL BUSINESS GRANT PROGRAM – OPEN NOW!

The Economic Development Council is accepting applications for Lincoln County businesses with up to 20 employees that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. The requirements and application for this grant program can be found here: Lincoln County Working Washington Grant Application.docx
This grant is now closed and applications are being proccessed.  

Funding for this program comes from the state’s Working Washington Small Business program and federal Coronavirus Assistance, Recovery and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds and are intended to help with COVID-19 response and recovery efforts across Washington State. Commerce partnered with the Lincoln County Economic Development Council 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. “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.”
