The WWSBEG (Working Washington Small Business Emergency Grant) is currently being disbursed to businesses, bringing them in total $151,138 worth of aid. These funds should hopefully help keep the businesses afloat and running. But that is not to say that the businesses would no longer appreciate the residents of our town to shop local! If we come together as a community and a state to support our local businesses, their chances of success rise through even a trying time such as this. As such, this grant money dispersal is but one of the many steps we as a community are ready to take part in for those in our area.
