Grants for Small Businesses!
Do you own or manage a small, emerging, or seasonal business that is based in St. Johnsbury? Do you need some support to help your business become established or grow?
The St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce now offers Business MicroGrants of $1,000 to help your business thrive.
Business MicroGrants can be used to pay for web and graphic design, photography, a marketing plan, lawyer’s fees, or building enhancement design (such as interior, window, or façade improvement design).
Applications are due on May 1, 2017, and projects must be completed by July 31, 2017.
“Small investments can have enormous payoffs,” says Tara Holt, director of the St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce. “These Business MicroGrants emerged as a priority for businesses.” Applications will be reviewed by a committee established to support small and emerging businesses in St. J. “This is something real that we can offer to entrepreneurs who are getting started or seeking to grow their business.”
The St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce received support for this initiative from the US Department of Agriculture – Rural Development to jump-start our local economy. “We’ve collected a list of advisors who specialize in the services small businesses need to succeed,” says Holt.
