SBC presents; Learn more about Windsor-Essex Neighbourhood Small Business Grants
June 13, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFREE
The United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex and the WindsorEssex Small Business Centre recently announced a new regional grant program – Neighbourhood Small Business Grant. The purpose of the grant is to encourage new and existing businesses to locate in Priority Neighbourhoods across Windsor-Essex County, and is a part of a broad-based community and economic revitalization effort.
The United Way currently funds four neighbourhood engagement programs and an integral part of neighbourhood revival is thriving small businesses within communities. As a natural evolution of these efforts, the grants will support businesses looking to open in these priority areas in Windsor (Downtown, Olde Sandwich Towne, Wyandotte Town Centre, Ford City) and targeted areas in the County (Uptown Leamington, Essex Centre, Harrow).
The Neighbourhood Small Business Grant program makes available training and business supports to applicants by the Small Business Centre. Through this partnership, four – $5,000 grants will be awarded throughout 2017. It is now open to receive applications up to July 1, 2017.
