COVID-19 is causing a catastrophic economic impact on Stanwood’s small business community. The Stanwood SOARING Small Business Grant Program is a positive step, but it may not provide enough funding for every injured business to receive a grant, nor will it fix all the damage caused to those businesses that receive a grant. Unfortunately, many businesses that qualify and are deserving may not receive a Stanwood SOARING grant. Other small business funding opportunities are available through the State of Washington or SBA.
The Stanwood SOARING Grant Program -Round 2 is made possible from funding provided by a Snohomish County-Cities Partnership.
A total of $2.5 million will be divided amongst all eligible Snohomish County city programs. The allocation will be determined on a population basis. If a city’s unfunded need is less than their allocation, the remaining allocation will be distributed to the other city programs on the same population basis.
Applications for CRF funds are available on the City of Stanwood SOARING Grant Program webpage. Applications are also available in alternative formats by contacting the City of Stanwood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application period will be open from November 30, 2020, through 5 p.m. PDT on December 7, 2020. Screening and award of grants to be completed by December 31, 2020.
No applications will be accepted after this deadline. Mailed applications must be postmarked in time to be received by the deadline. Applications will not be accepted by e-mail or fax.
