Application Process For Small Business Emergency Grant Funding Opens

The Small Business Emergency Grant is pleased to announce a 4th round of funding, opening September 8th, 2020. In partnership with the Methow Valley Long Term Recovery Organization and Okanogan County’s Economic Alliance, TwispWorks launched the Small Business Emergency Grant in May this year to give $1500 to those businesses most impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. Over the past four months we have raised $91,600 and given a total of 37 grants to local businesses.

In this Fourth Round of funding, we invite businesses and nonprofits who employ more than 2-3 employees, and who have had substantial losses due to cancelled events or loss of revenue from the Coronavirus pandemic. If you have not applied yet, please do so by September 25th, 2020. Applications will be reviewed after the 25th, and awards distributed the following week.
