Working Washington Round 4 Small Business Grants


In February 2021, the Washington State Legislature established additional financial relief for small businesses across the state through the Working Washington Round 4 Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program. The Washington State Department of Commerce will be taking applications from eligible businesses between March 29 and April 9 for grants up to $25,000.

A business must meet the following eligibility requirements to apply for the grant:

  • Active for-profit business or individual DBA located in Washington State (“does business as”). Businesses can only apply for one location per business (identified by UBI or EIN).
  • Has been in business before January 1, 2020 and filed a 2019 tax return.
  • Generates at least 51% of revenue in Washington State.
  • Operates from a physical brick and mortar location in Washington State (separate from owner’s home).
  • Reported gross annual revenue between $25,000 – $5 million in 2019.
  • Experienced a decrease in revenue and/or incurred additional costs between 2019 and 2020 due to COVID-19 public health and safety measures.

Priority for the grant funding is being provided to businesses that were required to close, lost revenue as a result of closure, and have incurred additional expenses related to maintaining safe operations. The grant program is a great opportunity for restaurants and other hospitality businesses that have been adversely impacted by the pandemic. Additional information regarding the grant can be found on the Washington State Department of Commerce website:
