Amidst the uncertain times brought on by the Coronavirus, The Shop Local Network realized that we must do more to help local small businesses. It was then that our community grant program was formed. Our goal is to offer over
$1 million in Grants in 2021 to local Chambers of Commerce to help raise the awareness of the importance of shopping local.
Partnering with Chambers
We are partnering with local Chambers of Commerce to help them roll out Shop Local programs. Our grant program allows Chambers to receive up to $250,000 in Small Business promotional videos for their local small businesses. The amount of the grant is based upon the number of small businesses in the community. We encourage any community to apply and look forward to helping as many communities as we can! Check out the video to hear from one of our grant recipients.
How it Works
Our staff will review each application. If your community is selected, a member of our team will contact you to discuss all the details of the program. We start with a media blitz followed by our team coming to your community and filming promotional videos for your local small businesses. This is a grant program and there is no cost to the chamber to apply or to receive the grant for their community.
