The Tech grant can be used for:
- Physical tech like a computer or camera.
- Better software.
- Improvements to your website
Improvements that have been made after March 1st, 2020 will be considered up to $2000. To apply please fill out the application form attached below and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org. While we will take applications through summer, the sooner you get your application in the sooner we can adjudicate and distribute funds. The committee hopes to review the first set of applications at the beginning of May. Please let us know if you have any questions about the application process.
The Broadway BID has developed a Grant Program to provide funding to property owners and tenants to redesign, renovated, and re-image how their business operates. The goal of the program is to encourage businesses to invest in upgrades that create a more interesting and appealing environment for Broadway customers, clients, and visitors through urban design.
The Broadway BID hopes this initiative will contribute to:
- Improving the overall district streetscape
- Promoting the marketability of retail and commercial businesses within the District
- Helping business owners attract and retain tenants
- Building civic pride among the business community and the citizens
- Promoting commercial neighbourhood identity
Grants can cover up to one-half (50%) of the cost of the improvements funding a maximum grant of $1,000. The minimum grant available is $100 for a minimum work of $200. Should there not be adequate funding to meet the demand for the program, applications will be held and processed in chronological order of their application date as funding becomes available.
The grant will be paid upon receipt of invoices for completed work and inspection of the improvements by the Broadway BID. This grant will accept invoices dated from January 1st, 2020 to present.
