REOPEN DOWNTOWN GRANT PROGRAM
Financial Support to Consumer-Focused Businesses
*APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. GRANT RECIPIENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED 2-3 WEEKS AFTER THE MAY 22ND DEADLINE
The Downtown Dayton Partnership recognizes the need in our small business community to develop new, creative ways to help sustain them through the COVID-19 pandemic. In collaboration with the CareSource Foundation, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce, and CityWide Development Corp., we have created a special funding program for our consumer businesses. The Re-Open Downtown Dayton Fund will provide small grants to help cover operating expenses and provide bridge / gap assistance to downtown’s locally owned consumer businesses that plan to return to operations following this crisis.
The application deadline to apply was May 22, 2020 at 5pm EDT. Applications are being considered on their merit by a selection committee made up of downtown business leaders. This is NOT a first-come, first-served grant. The fund will be administered by the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce Education and Public Improvement (EPI) Foundation.
