The Seattle Good Business Network Support Hub is a compilation of resources and information for the general public looking to support our local businesses and community, and for our local businesses looking for relief, promotion, and tools to navigate these uncharted economic waters.

On this page, you’ll find general COVID-19 information and updates, local news, and government health and resources.

Other pages share community supporters and resources, how to support local businesses, how to support local restaurants, resources for small business owners, and resources for small business employees. 

We will be regularly updating this site. If you have additional ideas please let us know!
