*Applications are now closed, but we are still seeking service providers*
The goals of the program are to:
- Provide financial support to local businesses seeking to improve, enhance and elevate their current operations in their physical and/or online space.
- Focus on the implementation of technical assistance in local businesses’ digital and physical spaces.
- Engage with local service providers to implement the technical assistance to create a multiplier effect for the community.
- Help keep Cape Cod unique by supporting independent businesses in this era of standardization.
The Local Business Boost Pilot Program will provide grants to qualifying locally owned businesses with a physical location within the Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District. The program will provide an assessment of the local business recipients to determine their service from e-commerce development to social media strategic planning and façade improvements to merchandising assistance and match them with qualified local service providers and compensate technical service providers to conduct the required work. Most grants will be in the range of $1,000-$5,000, however awards may be more or less based on need and availability of funds.
