BE$T is an approved Self Employment Assistance Program (SEAP) helping people on unemployment start a business!
We are approved by the Washington State Employment Security Department (ESD) as a SEAP Approved Provider. Once you are approved by the Employment Security Department, you will continue to collect unemployment benefits (and no longer be required to do weekly job searches) while you receive business basis training during our 8-week program. The Self-Employment Assistance Program (SEAP) does NOT cover tuition costs for the BE$T Program.
