Facebook Grants for Small Businesses



On April 2nd, Facebook announced new updates to its small-business grant program, including $40 million in grants for small businesses, with a special focus on Seattle-based businesses. 

Eligible businesses include the following requirements: 

  • Have between 2 and 50 employees

  • Have been in business for over a year

  • Have experienced challenges from COVID-19

  • Be in or near a location where Facebook operates

The grants will go to 10,000 U.S. small businesses in 34 locations that Facebook employees live and work. Importantly, businesses in New York and Seattle will be the first to receive funds starting next week.

Facebook says it’s also collaborating with small-business partner Ureeka to invest in eligible minority and women-owned businesses. Local businesses can go to facebook.com/grantsforbusiness to check their eligibility.

KOH Hair Salon FaceTime/WhatsApp appointments

From Dusty James @kohsalon Instagram 4/3

Hey Koh Fam!

I sent out an email to all of you stating that Inslee’s stay at home order is now until May 4th.

As saddened as we all are I want to move forward the best we can and offer at home FaceTime appointments to color and possibly cut your own hair.

This is limited to facial framing, bangs and single process color for greys etc. Unfortunately anyone who is blonde I cannot help over FaceTime, as it is a very dangerous thing to do at home because of breakage. But if you’re feeling brave and want to do your own bangs or touch up your greys please reach out to book a FaceTime or WhatsApp appointment.

Also I can ship you any products and invoice you!

CARES Act: Applications open TODAY 4/3 + other updates


The Magnolia Chamber of Commerce has been using our website, emails and social media to connect our small businesses members with resources related to the CARES Act and the Small Business Administration (SBA) loan and grant relief programs during this difficult time. 

Please note that as of Thursday, April 2nd, SBA has finalized guidance for the highly anticipated Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Although the early release of documents from the U.S. Treasury states that applications open TODAY – April 3, please note that SBA lenders are receiving this information at the same time. As such, many of the SBA lenders (shareable PDF attached), may not be able to answer questions and immediately accept their first applications as of tomorrow. 

Just updated on the website are new financing pages that link from www.sba.gov/coronavirus. As you can see from the screenshot below, it’s a nice summary of funding options. Because there are so many moving parts, many are recommending the directing applicants to www.sba.gov/coronavirus any new info will link up from there. We also strongly encourage you to contact your banker.
