The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) recently approved a disaster declaration




For this declaration, SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) for businesses and private non-profit organizations that may or may not have sustained any physical damage, but who have difficulty meeting their routine obligations because of the disaster. These EIDLs are available in Chelan, King, Kitsap, Kittitas, Pierce, Snohomish and Yakima counties.


This is to assist small businesses economically impacted by the civil unrest that began May 26, 2020. The deadline for businesses who suffered economic damage to return EIDL applications is June 16, 2021.

In consideration of the public health concerns due to the Coronavirus pandemic, SBA established a Virtual Business Recovery Center to answer questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, explain the application process and help each individual complete their electronic loan application.
