The Pierce County Council enacted the COVID-19 Emergency Small Business Relief Loan Program on March 24, 2020, a direct action to keep businesses located in unincorporated Pierce County in operation and protect jobs threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Loan amounts up to $10,000 will be awarded, based on number of employees. Loans will be offered to qualified applicants at no interest and no payments for 12 months.
Businesses applying for loans under this program must:
- Be a business physically located in unincorporated Pierce County
- Have 10 or fewer employees (including business owner)
- Be in operation for one or more years
- Demonstrate at least a 25% reduction in revenues attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic
Only one loan per business owner or owner group, regardless of the number of business locations an ownership may have. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, subject to available funds.
