The City of Anacortes has developed an emergency relief grant on behalf of the Skagit Community Foundation to provide funding for small businesses (no more than 30 employees) facing financial jeopardy due to COVID-19 public safety measures. This funding is provided in accordance to IRS Publication 9833, which states disaster assistance may be provided to businesses to achieve the following charitable purposes: to aid individual business owners who are financially needy or otherwise distressed, to combat community deterioration, and to lessen the burdens of government. The maximum amount of each request will be $10,000 in assistance to those businesses who are financially needy or otherwise distressed due to the current pandemic.
If you are unable to meet the financial needs to keep your business up and running due to the COVID-19 restrictions, visit the City of Anacortes Planning, Community & Economic Development website and check out COVID-19 Small Business Grant Information or click HERE to find out how you can apply.
