There is a very short window to apply.

In the first two rounds of small business grants the City of Everett distributed more than one million dollars to 106 businesses. Now thanks to a last minute grant by Snohomish County, business owners in Everett, Washington can participate in a third round of Cares Grants. Here is a link to the application and instructions.

Julio Cortes, senior communications officer for the City of Everett sent out the following information Thursday afternoon outlining this third round.

– The application process for round three of the Everett CARES grant program opened Thursday, Dec. 3rd at 5 p.m. for businesses in the city of Everett. Applications are due by Monday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m.

Small businesses within Everett city limits with 20 employees or less, that have not received grants in prior Everett CARES rounds, are eligible to apply for grants of $10,000 and businesses with 21 to 50 employees may apply for grants of $20,000. Everett CARES awardees from previous rounds will be eligible for smaller grants.

“I’m grateful we are able to offer our small businesses a third round of Everett CARES grants,” said Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin. “The pandemic continues to have a devastating effect on our economy and I am worried for our small businesses. We will do all we can to continue to support them.”

Round three of the Everett CARES grant program offers $640,000 in grant funds, made possible by Snohomish County and funding provided by the federal 2020 CARES Act through the Washington State Department of Commerce.

A total of $340,000 will be awarded to businesses that have not yet received Everett CARES grants, while another $300,000 will be awarded to businesses that received Everett CARES grants in previous rounds.

“Our goal is to provide another influx of funds to help small businesses battle the economic effects of this pandemic,” said Dan Eernissee, economic development director. “We are thankful for our county partners for helping to ensure jobs are retained and small businesses continue to operate.”

The first two rounds of the Everett CARES grant program earlier this year awarded $1.2 million in grants to 106 small businesses in Everett, Washington.
