WA State Dept. of Commerce Grants

Over the last year, Washington State has provided small businesses throughout the state with more than $125 million in grants to address the economic impacts of COVID-19. This effort continues with a new round of grant opportunities being managed by the Washington State Department of Commerce.


The WSDA Relief and Recovery grants are available thanks to a partnership with the Washington State Department of Commerce.  Grants are available for small businesses in four sectors. These four sectors were selected for assistance as a way to bolster the health and diversity of the Washington state economy by providing support to disproportionately impacted and previously underserved agricultural sectors. 

The grant application portal opened on Friday April 9 and closes April 26.
