The Department of Commerce has announced a Washington Hospitality grant program designed to provide qualifying businesses with COVID-19 relief is opening March 14. The Washington Wine Institute worked hard last session to secure the $85 million set aside in the budget for this grant.
This program offers one-time grants to eligible wineries, restaurants, hotels, and other qualifying businesses that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency or its negative economic impacts.
The grant program is intended to support eligible small businesses that can demonstrate a 25% reduction in revenues as a result of the pandemic. A portion of funding is designated to reimburse lodging establishments that experienced losses during the state’s eviction moratorium pursuant to the governor’s proclamations.
