Washington County Local Business Relief Grants

In early January 2021, Washington County received $5,058,997 in county relief grants for local businesses as approved by the State Legislature on Monday, December 14, 2020. The county received this allocation from the state on a per-capita basis, and is directed by law to use the funds to make grants to individual businesses and non-profits that, to the extent it is feasible for the county to determine, are located in the county; have no current tax liens on record with the Secretary of State, and are impacted by an executive order related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
