Business Mini-Grant Program
The El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce will again be presenting Business Grants to local businesses. The goal of the Business Mini-Grant Program is to further assist the selected business in achieving its goals. These goals can be employee development, purchasing equipment, ordering new signage, purchase advertising, etc. The grant must be used to meet a business need so businesses can continue to expand and prosper in El Dorado County.
Funding for the grant program has come from the generous support of previous sponsors. Continuation of the Business Grant Program is dependent on the generous support from this year’s 2018 Business Showcase sponsors, participants, and donations from the community.
The Chamber of Commerce of El Dorado County encourages businesses to assess their current business needs, and then send in an application for the Business Mini-Grant program.
Applications must be returned to the Chamber office no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 23, 2018. Nomination forms and Mini Grant applications are available at - www.eldoradocounty.org
The awards and grants will be awarded at the Luncheon.
