The Jefferson Wants You Incentive Fund for new small businesses and remote workers still has funds available.  

New businesses locating to Jefferson in 2022 – 2023 can apply for up to $5,000 of start-up costs in establishing the business.  Those types of costs include tables, chairs, office furniture, computers, point of sale system, etc. These costs are a one time cost to get the business up and running. Ongoing and administrative costs are not eligible.  The application is available on the experiencejeffersoniowa.com website  under the Grow Here tab – Entrepreneurial Opportunities.  

The Jefferson Wants You Incentive Fund for remote workers is designed to encourage people who work remotely to utilize Gravitate Coworking in downtown Jefferson.  Connectivity with high-speed broadband and connections with other remote workers makes Jefferson a great option for those want to live in a vibrant, rural community.  This fund is available for current remote workers and those moving to Greene County and includes a one year floating desk membership.  Applications can be found on the experiencejeffersoniowa.com website under the Grow Here tab – Entrepreneurial Opportunities.

Both of the applications are available in English or Spanish.  

To date, four new businesses have been awarded start-up funds and two remote workers have received a year’s membership to Gravitate.
