Does it apply to me?

I can't tell you! There is a whole list of things to be eligible for this grant. But I have tracked down the list of requirements.


Washington state is fairly friendly towards small businesses. There are many opportunities to receive money especially after a global crisis. It's worth digging a little deeper to see if there are ways to get relief.
