Two weeks left to apply for small business grants in unincorporated King County

Funds of up to $25,000 can reimburse expenses incurred by COVID-19

Small businesses in unincorporated King County still have about two weeks to apply for up to $25,000 in grants to cover expenses incurred by the coronavirus pandemic.

The “Revive and Thrive” initiative is open to businesses with 30 or fewer employees and $3 million or less in annual gross income. Those businesses must also be active and licensed in the state of Washington with a physical business address in unincorporated King County.

The funds can reimburse businesses for rent, employee payroll, goods, services and other COVID-19 related expenses. Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Aug. 4.

Small business owners can apply online at https://kingcounty.gov/localbusinesshelp or by calling 206-477-3800. For more information, contact Jerry Pionk at 206-477-5889 or JPionk@kingcounty.gov.

This is the county’s second grant program provided to small businesses during the pandemic. In 2020, grants of up to $5,000 were awarded to 571 businesses, totaling nearly $3 million in aid.
