King County has completed its COVID-19 relief grant process.
Thank you to all who applied for these funds.
The list of grant fund awardees is available by clicking here.


King County is providing one-time grants as economic support to certain types of organizations in King County experiencing business interruption caused by the required closures of the COVID-19 public health emergency. This program is tailored for organizations that draw tourists and are facing unexpected interruption due to the COVID-19 closures. Through these grants, King County seeks to ease the economic burden on three types of organizations resulting from the second-order economic impacts associated with the COVID-19 required closures : science organizations; arts, culture, and science organizations that provide educational programs; and, independent live music venues . This program is designed to facilitate compliance with public health safety measures so that organizations are positioned to safely resume activities when allowed to do so. 

Providing grant funds will help facilitate compliance with the public health safety measures by these organizations as they reopen in support the county’s economic recovery, attract tourists, and enhance the quality of life for all King County residents.
