In April, Gov. Jay Inslee announced an award of nearly $300 million to local governments across Washington from the state’s allocation of CARES Act federal funding.

The City of Federal Way was awarded approximately $2.96 million in federal funding to help with reimbursable costs it has accrued in response to COVID-19 public health impacts. Mayor Jim Ferrell decided to allocate up to $2.5 million in funding to be available to Federal Way businesses negatively affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
