The City of Tacoma is launching a program to help small businesses replace their broken windows.
Tacoma has planned to help more than 100 businesses repair their windows, estimating it will cost around $2,500 each. This money will come from funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. The total funds available for this grant program is $300,000.
A city statement said the program is “part of efforts to mitigate the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Tacoma’s small business community.”
The details of the window replacement grant program were informed by input from the City Council’s Economic Development Committee, developed by the City of Tacoma’s Community and Economic Development Department.
