Announcing Small Business Support Grants

Small businesses that have been affected negatively by COVID-19 are eligible to receive grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.

The City Council voted on July 7, 2020, to allocate $250,370, which includes $98,370 from King County, to help local small businesses respond to impacts from the pandemic, begin to reopen, and expand operations.

Grants may be used for rent or mortgage payments on the business location, wages, personal protective equipment, and other operating costs and expenses. Eligible applicants must hold an active Sammamish business license, have 15 or fewer full-time equivalent employees, and be able to demonstrate the negative impact on their business due to COVID-19.

The Small Business Support Grant application will open on Monday, August 3, 2020 and be available until Thursday, August 20, 2020 on the City’s website at
