Business Promotion Funds available

The Danville Town Council set aside Business Promotion Funds for the purpose of town-wide business recruitment or economic development. Examples of past funded projects are the Discover Danville Branding Campaign, the Eugene O'Neill Festival, and the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce Danville Life publication.

The Town Council will consider an appropriation of up to $50,000 for 2007-08 for the business funds when it adopts the annual Financial Plan. Preference may be given to requests that provide for matching funds.

Organizations or individuals seeking Business Promotion Funds must submit proposals to the town that include the amount requested, the purpose for funding, and the anticipated benefit to the business community. Applications must be received in the Town Offices by 5 p.m., Friday, April 20. The Town Council will conduct a study session to review submitted project applications on Tuesday, May 29. To request an application or more information, contact Bonnie Guttman at 314-3395.
