Council expands support to help more local businesses
This week the Pierce County Council passed two ordinances aimed at making more funding available to local businesses struggling from impacts of COVID-19.
The first ordinance doubled the total amount of money available through a previously established COVID-19 Adaptation Grant Program, bringing the total authorized for assistance to $10 million. It also expanded the maximum grant amount available to businesses up to $50,000, based on total number of full-time equivalent employees.
The second ordinance established a Commercial Rent and Mortgage Payment Assistance Program that provides limited assistance to eligible businesses to help protect jobs threatened by COVID-19.
Learn more details about these programs.
I implore you to take advantage of the assistance provided, and be both prompt and vigilant in applying while funds are available. Should you need assistance being directed to the proper program, please contact my office at 253.798.3635 or at [email protected].
Stay Safe – Stay Strong!
