The COVID-19 pandemic has created an ongoing state of economic emergency for Tualatin’s small businesses and entrepreneurs. The City of Tualatin is committed to taking ongoing actions to help affected businesses mitigate these extreme challenges.
While nearly all businesses are facing economic losses, businesses that are under state mandatory services changes are experiencing additional and unique circumstances. Our priority is helping these businesses remain operational and successful long-term. The City believes that another stabilization assistance program to sustain place and labor is our primary goal with the most economic impact.
The City of Tualatin will commit $600,000 from the City of Tualatin, the federal Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) funds, and the State of Oregon to the City of Tualatin’s Economic Stabilization Fund 2.0 Program that will provide grants in amounts up to $30,000 to qualifying businesses. This grant may be used for any operating expense deemed necessary to sustain the current workforce as feasible or maintain an operating physical presence.
