To provide financial support to qualifying businesses impacted by recently modified COVID-19 restrictions, Pierce County has created a grant program to help offset the costs of business disruption.

    • Restaurants, caterers, taprooms, and similar eating and drinking establishments that do not have a drive-through
    • In-store retail 
    • Arts and culture establishments such as theaters, museums, and entertainment venues 
    • Fitness facilities, gyms, and bowling centers 
    • Farmers markets  
  • Be a business physically located anywhere in Pierce County including incorporated cities
  • Have 20 or fewer full-time equivalent employees (including business owner) except that eating and drinking establishments shall have no full-time equivalent employee limit
  • Be an independent business and not a corporate chain or corporate franchise 
  • Be a business operating consistent with current state and local COVID-19 guidance that has not filed for bankruptcy

Grant funds may be taxable income; please consult with your financial advisor for guidance; a 1099 will be issued to a grant recipient as required by the IRS.
