LOCAL RESOURCES FOR BUSINESSES

  • During the Stay Home, Stay Healthy closures, Kitsap chambers of commerce rallied to support local businesses in not only strengthening their resiliency but also implementing new and creative strategies to stay afloat while supporting their employees. Read their letter to the community.

  • The local chambers of commerce recently compiled a Back to Business Toolkit that offers a variety of resources for successfully reopening. Chambers are also promoting a new site at kitsapcovid19.com and a local COVID-19 Business Support Facebook page.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR BUSINESSES AND WORKERS

The U.S. Small Business Association provides coronavirus relief funding options.

Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) is a federal program that adds $300 for each week the program remains federally funded (en Español). If you receive unemployment benefits for certain weeks and you are unemployed or working fewer hours due to disruptions caused by COVID-19, you may be eligible for these benefits. The LWA program has a limited budget, so the length of time it's available depends on how quickly all participating states use up the federal funds. Employment Security Department will start processing payments of $300 to eligible claimants for this new program on Monday, Sept. 21. Payments will be retroactive for all weeks for which the claimant was eligible, and for which funding is available from the federal government. Upon the processing date, eligible claimants will receive the funds as soon as their bank processes the payment. Refer to the Employment Security Department website for details.
