New Federal Stimulus Funding: Updated 12/21/2020
The United States Federal Government is set to vote on new Stimulus this week that should help individuals and businesses alike. In this new batch of Stimulus is a one time $600 direct payment to Americans and boosted unemployment benefits of $300 per week for 11 weeks. We will be keeping an eye on the new programs of grants, PPP and other sources available to you and your business.
New Grants & Restrictions: Updated 11/18/2020
Announced on Sunday, Governor Inslee announced new restrictions on businesses and gatherings to hopefully put a lid on the quickly rising number of new COVID-19 cases in our state. As a result many of our restaurants, coffee shops and bars will be transitioning back to Take Out service only. Due to these new restrictions the City of Sumner enacted a new grant program for restaurants within City Limits. This program grants them $2,500 but the application must be filled out immediately.
