Jackson County Mississippi Opens Applications for Small Business Grants
Eligible small businesses are those who have 50 or less employees and are members of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce. The grant money can be used to make improvements to storefronts, purchase equipment, to develop marketing plans, for advertising campaigns, to add displays for more merchandise, and other business-related expenses that will improve customer service.
Each year, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce creates a small business fund from donations from corporations and other companies dedicated to supporting the growth of small business in their community. The fund allows small businesses to apply for these grants through corporate contributions from companies that are interested in the growth and development of the small business community in Jackson County.
Since 1943, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce has supported small business and other efforts to improve the economy and quality of life for residents in Jackson County.
The deadline for applying for the grants is August 30, 2013.
