Snoqualmie Establishes COVID-19 Rapid Relief Program

The City of Snoqualmie is establishing a COVID-19 Snoqualmie Small Business and Community Rapid Relief Program to assist small, locally-owned, Snoqualmie-based businesses and community organizations. The city will partner with the SnoValley Chamber of Commerce to help administer the process.

This emergency program will provide working capital grants – in amounts generally limited up to $10,000 – to small businesses, social service agencies, and community organizations that meet specific criteria, which are posted on the City of Snoqualmie website at snoqualmiewa.gov.

“Small businesses and community organizations play a vital role in the overall health and welfare of Snoqualmie’s residents,” said Mayor Matt Larson. “While social distancing is critical to reducing the spread of COVID-19, the economic fallout has been devastating. Many establishments in our city will require public financial assistance to remain viable and continue supporting the Snoqualmie community. We are determined to support them in any way possible.”

Many cities throughout Washington State will soon be eligible to receive reimbursement funds from Governor Inslee and the State of Washington through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to support local recovery efforts from the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

The City of Snoqualmie is eligible to receive up to $410,000 in reimbursements for city funds expended to support its COVID-19 Snoqualmie Small Business and Community Rapid Relief Program.

Application materials and submission guidelines will be posted on the city website. To be notified of the availability, please email jpliego@snoqualmiewa.gov.

Businesses and organizations interested in applying should review the criteria ahead of time to determine if they will qualify.
