GIG HARBOR, WASH. (JUNE 12, 2020) -- On May 28th, the Gig HarborCity Council passed a resolution authorizing the creation of a Small Business Stabilization Grant program to support local businesses and the economy.

Businesses are eligible to apply for a grant if they meet the following criteria:
Applications for Small Business Stabilization Grants will be accepted starting at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, June 19, 2020. The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 25, 2020. Applications may be submitted at any time - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - until the deadline.
A preview of the application can be found here.
The application will ask businesses to provide the following information:
In the event the total number of qualified applicants exceeds 205 in number, the City will randomly select 205 of the qualified applicants to receive the $1500 grant award. The City Council reluctantly implemented the lottery system in order to ensure a consequential minimum grant amount of $1500.
If there are fewer than 205 total qualified applicants, the entire $308,000 will be divided equally between the applicants.
Selected applicants will be required to sign an agreement with the City for the award of grant funds. The agreement template can be found here.
A W-9 form will also be required for payment.
