Bricks & Clicks

GRANT PROGRAM

The Bricks & Clicks Grant Program encourages business expansion and business retention by providing resources to downtown merchants to invest in facade improvements and/or e-commerce. 

The purpose of the program is to provide downtown Stevenson business and/or property owners with financial assistance in the wake of the pandemic economic crisis for: 

  • improving business facades to enhance the downtown area 

  • investing in e-commerce solutions to enhance transactions and accessibility 

SDA may award 75-100% of approved project costs (not to exceed $1,000 per project). The applicant will be responsible for the remaining cost.

ELIGIBILITY:

  • Applicant has been financially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
