Apply for a relief grant today!
On October 20, the Mercer Island City Council unanimously approved a new grant program to support Mercer Island businesses and nonprofits impacted by COVID-19.
The Mercer Island COVID-19 Relief for Small Businesses Grant Program provides $270,000 of the City's second round of CARES Act funding to help assist local organizations who have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic, including those organizations that were required to modify or close operations per the guidelines outlined in Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington Plan and other COVID-19 related mandates.
With these funds, we hope to help Island businesses and nonprofits remain open, retain/hire employees, and stay in business to continue serving the Mercer Island community.
Not a local business owner? Help us get the word out! The next time you order takeout, schedule a salon service, or visit your favorite Island retailer, encourage them to apply for a grant.
