EVERETT, Wash. – The application process for round two of the Everett CARES grant program will open on Thursday, Aug. 20 at 5 p.m. for small businesses in the city of Everett. Applications are due by Friday, Sept. 11 at 5 p.m.

Round two of the Everett CARES grant program is made possible by funding provided by the federal 2020 CARES Act through the Washington State Department of Commerce. A notable update for round two is that it allows the City of Everett to award grants of $10,000 to small businesses with 1-20 employees and $20,000 to businesses with 21-50 employees.

The goal of the program is to provide a surge of resources to help Everett businesses emerge from this difficult time so that jobs will be retained, and goods and services will be provided.

The first round of the Everett CARES grant program earlier this year received 153 applications from small business of which 50 were awarded $10,000 grants. Of the 50 small businesses, 27 are owned by women, 14 by minorities, four by veterans and two by people who identify as LGBTQIA.

More information on eligibility and the application process can be found at everettwa.gov/everettcares.
