A grant program approved by the Brownsburg Town Council will offer funding to local small businesses to help them to reopen. The grant application process is now open, and funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis until the $30,000 allotment is used.
“We wanted to provide short-term, proactive help to our local economy during this unsettling time,” said Town Council President Travis Tschaenn. “Brownsburg has a thriving business community. Council members want our town to continue to be a place where businesses feel supported.”
Businesses with 20 or fewer full-time employees may apply for up to $1,000 to be used to buy PPE, sanitize public spaces or whatever needs they deem to be necessary to protect employees and customers.
“We couldn’t think of a better use for our Economic Development Income Tax dollars than to support the small businesses that help to make our community a place we all call home,” said Town Manager Jeff Eder.
Businesses must meet criteria to receive funding, including being located within city limits, be a for-profit organization, employ 20 or fewer full time workers and have owner support for the application. Businesses can apply here.
