The news is dominated by the pandemic, as it has been for a while now. First is a grant program with a nearly immediate deadline for Bellingham businesses hit by COVID-19. Then there's the latest on applying for forgiveness on a Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loan. Lastly, a kind of a quiz - not what Harry Potter character you're most likely to marry, but whether that person you hired is a contractor or an employee.
WWSBEG 2.0 pandemic grant, deadline October 1
Local companies in Bellingham may qualify for a Working Washington Small Business Emergency Grant 2.0 to get reimbursed for expenses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. But hurry to apply - the deadline is Thursday, October 1!
