The City of Snoqualmie has fully disbursed $435,000 of its COVID-19 Rapid Relief Program funding to help local businesses and organizations recover from the Washington shutdown and phased reopening. Most funds were disbursed in July and the final check was sent on September 3.
“We are pleased we were able to provide this funding to some of the businesses and community organizations impacted by the pandemic,” said Mayor Matt Larson. “However, those granted funds and many others are still in financial straits. We all need to eat, shop, and stay local to help our neighborhood stores, restaurants, service providers, and non-profits keep their doors open.”
The city will be reimbursed $410,000 from the State of Washington using Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) dollars, with another $25,000 in grants from King County and King County Councilmember Lambert.

The SnoValley Chamber of Commerce partnered with the city to coordinate the application and distribution activities.
