A Rebuild-Business Marketing Fund has been established for Central Avenue Business Improvement District businesses. These funds will be awarded in amounts of up to $500 for expenditures specifically to support marketing and advertising. Businesses can choose their preferred local or digital advertising channels and must be able to show proof of eligible expenses. In addition, the funds may be used for point of purchase technology, improvements that may help businesses support online sales and gift card sales.
The fund has been established due to the effects of COVID-19 and recent property damage. Funds will be distributed at the time of the award.
The fund is limited, so it will be a first-come, first-served basis. There is a grant that has been given to the CBID in providing these funds and those funds have a minority and women-owned business priority.
