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.
