Applications for Business Matching Grant Program Goes Live September 3

On August 11, the Louisville City Council adopted the Recovery & Improvement Matching Grant Program to continue assistance to businesses that have suffered economic injury to stabilize and recover. 

The program application will open September 3. The application link will be posted on the City’s website and will also be shared via an email announcement that day. 

The program is funded by $150,000 from the City’s General Fund. The City anticipates the program will run through December 31, 2020, though it may end earlier if all program funds are spent. Eligible businesses can seek 50% matching funds for projects that meet the Program Criteria, with a maximum matching grant of $10,000. Each eligible business may only receive one funded project under this program. Only projects that have not been completed or previously paid-for will be considered.

Businesses should review the program information now and consider whether to submit an application. Please contact Economic Vitality Director Megan Pierce if you have questions about whether your project will meet program criteria: mpierce@louisvilleco.gov or 303.335.4531. 

A dedicated Recovery & Improvement webpage contains more detailed information about program eligibility, criteria, and process.
