The WSDA Relief and Recovery Grants will provide support to small businesses and organizations in four sectors, including small craft beverage producers, that play an important role in the economic viability of Washington agriculture and have been economically impacted due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. This grant serves the public purpose of bolstering the viability of the Washington State agricultural industry, helping prevent business closures, and hence supporting the health and diversity of Washington State’s economy.

Need Help?

The Washington Brewers Guild asked me to share this message with all breweries in Washington, knowing that I reach many breweries that are not members of the Guild.

The Guild wants to help. They are working on behalf of the WSDA to provide education and assistance to grant applicants. The Guild invites all breweries to reach out if they have questions about either grant programs or if they need assistance with the WSDA Relief and Recovery Grant application.
