The application process has opened for small businesses in Snoqualmie and local community organizations impacted by the COVID-19 crisis to request emergency funding through the City of Snoqualmie COVID-19 Winter Relief Program.
Applications and a worksheet are available on the city website and can be submitted between October 7 and 16.
The first round of funding from this program provided $435,000 to support local recovery efforts. During this second round, $205,000 will be available in amounts of up to $5,000. The City of Snoqualmie will be reimbursed with funding made possible by Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).
This emergency program will provide working capital grants to small, locally-owned businesses, social service agencies, and community organizations that meet specific criteria outlined in the application. These funds can be used towards employee wages and taxes, personal protective equipment, operating costs, and winterization efforts such as equipment for outdoor seating.
Those chosen to receive Rapid Relief Funding in July, as well as those that did not apply at that time, are invited to submit an application for Winter Relief Funding no later than October 16 at 5 p.m. to Nicole Wiebe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Businesses must be located within Snoqualmie city limits. Applicants that are non-profit corporations or community organizations must be located within Snoqualmie city limits or – if not located within Snoqualmie city limits – must provide essential human/social services to Snoqualmie residents or play a significant economic, social, or cultural role for Snoqualmie.
Applications and the worksheet can be provided in languages other than English upon request to email@example.com.
