Announcing The Northern Light’s Local Business Stimulus Grant Program


Let’s Get Our Community Up and Running Again!


As we enter Phase 2 of Safe Start Washington, local businesses will need help getting back on their feet. The Northern Light is ready to do its part in the recovery process.


The Northern Light is establishing a $60,000 grant-matching program to assist local businesses during June, July, and August 2020. Grants are available for a minimum of $250 up to $3,500 in matching funds. These grants will be used to match local businesses’ advertising investments dollar-for-dollar. 


The Northern Light’s readership and community engagement is the strongest it has ever been — by helping local businesses connect effectively with our community, we can all begin our journey back to economic health. Our readers have supported The Northern Light and local journalism through these difficult times. We would like to ‘pay it forward’ by helping our fellow businesspeople to emerge stronger and more successful than before.


We urge the community to continue to observe safe practices such as social distancing, hand washing and wearing masks. However, if you can, please support our local businesses as they re-start or expand their services. They will appreciate your business.


Thank you.
