Existing Business Growth Mini-Grants

Local shopping has never been more important. Local retailers have gone above and beyond to meet the needs and wants of local consumers. New customers are being connected to local businesses, and existing customers are happy to be shopping and supporting local.

Is there a product or service that is not easily available in our local economy that your business  would like to introduce? Maybe it’s men’s clothing, a sporting goods line, or children’s toys. These are just some of the examples from the data collected in Jefferson that represents some of the wants and needs of the community members.

The goal of the Existing Business Growth Mini-Grant of up to $500 is to help take some of the financial fear away from introducing a new product. This grant program is to assist business owners in Jefferson financially to diversify and grow product lines based on ESRI data and demand of product. The grant is available at jeffersonmatters.org under Resources – Existing Business Growth Mini-Grant.

While the organization knows that every single product cannot be available locally, we want to assist in providing the products and services that we can in our community. It is important that we invest in YOU, our local businessperson.

This is a project of the Economic Vitality Team.  Please contact Executive Director Matt Wetrich at director@jeffersonmatters.org or call 515-386-2155 with questions.
