In the end of May, Gig Harbor’s City Council passed a resolution authorizing the creation of a Small Business Stabilization Grant program to support local businesses and economic recovery from the resulting impact of COVID-19 statewide shutdowns.


After receiving funds from the federal CARES Act stimulus package, Council and city staff worked quickly to build and moderate a fair and equitable application program and grant distribution mechanism. The total fund was set at $308,0000, meaning each awarded grant would total a minimum of $1,500. If fewer businesses were eligible, the total funds would be equally distributed among the final list.


A total of 130 businesses applied, and 111 businesses met the qualifications and were approved. Checks are being distributed this week, with the final total for each business set at $2,774.77.


The list of eligible businesses below met the following criteria: held a Gig Harbor business license prior to March 1, 2020; was a for-profit business physically located in the city of Gig Harbor; had ten or fewer full-time equivalent employees as of March 1, 2020; is not owned or  partially owned by employees or public officials associated with the City of Gig Harbor; that suffered a financial loss due to the COVID-19 executive order or proclamation by Governor Jay Inslee.
