Don Wick, the director of the Economic Development Association of Skagit County, said some businesses are down 80 percent since the bridge fell.
He has already heard from some who are considering taking advantage of an emergency loan program that just became available.
"We want to make sure businesses can stay healthy during this period of time," Wick said. "It's very important."

ESASC Executive Director Don Wick piggybacked on Mitchell's comments, presenting some other positive indicators for Skagit's growth.
t reflects the outstanding staff we have here, the strong leadership of our Board of Directors, and the tremendous support we have in our community," said EDASC Executive Director, Don Wick.
"Our Community Marketing Director, Terica Taylor, created this concept," says Execu-tive Director, Don Wick, "EDASC's mission is to create and retain jobs in Skagit County, and we can't do that without the support of the community behind these projects and the companies that might locate here in the future.
It was early evening, and Don Wick, executive director of EDASC, had just stopped at a local grocery store in Mount Vernon to pick up a few items before heading home after a day at the office. Strolling the aisles, he passed by shelves stocked with canned soups, bottled spices, bags of rice. A man approached."I'll never forget it," Wick says. "He stopped me in the grocery store to tell me that he had been out of work for a while but had recently been hired by a manufacturing company that EDASC helped to recruit into Skagit County. e said, 'I want to thank you. This job means a great deal to me and my family.'"
Wick says, "That's why I do this work."
In the more than 25 years that Don Wick, and the staff of the Economic Development Association of Skagit County, has worked to attract new businesses into the area, between 80 and 100 new companies have relocated or opened new facilities here. Some hired 10 people. Some hired hundreds.
While the company investigated other locations, Don Wick and the EDASC staff kept in touch with Sierra Pacific.
"I would say that Don Wick, and his assistance, was instrumental in bringing Sierra Pacific back into Skagit County.
Don Wick, Patti Burklund, the Port of Skagit's then executive director, engineer Gary Sturdy, and developer Orin Jones, flew to Casa Grande, Arizona and toured a Hexcel plant, then traveled to Dublin, California, to make their presentation.
"Don Wick and his team did a super job of educating the ITOCHU folks about the resources in the area, the characteristics of the community, the availability of workforce, the access to shipping lanes through rail, highway and ocean going ships.
Don Wick and Patti Burklund from the Port of Skagit were instrumental in attracting Team Corporation here, Huntley says.
In the end, Wick says the key to attracting new businesses to the area is all about building trust and relationships with prospective new companies.
That makes for a healthier community in every aspect, from education to the environment," Wick says. "It's just so vital."
