A second round of funding for the Skagit County Small Business Grant Program is now open to applications from small businesses and nonprofits impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Skagit County has received funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) and the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County (EDASC) is administering the grant program to distribute the funds.
Businesses can be awarded up to $25,000 depending on the number of employees, with a total of $750,000 expected to be distributed.
To be eligible, businesses must employ 25 fulltime employees or less and have had a 25% or greater reduction in revenue due to the pandemic. Nonprofits will be evaluated separately from the for-profit counterparts.
