***The deadline to distribute Marketing Co-op Grant awards is quickly approaching.
Funds are still available for approximately 3 fully funded websites. However, general marketing funds are extremely limited.***
The Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corporation's Small, Minority & Entrepreneurial Division is launching a marketing co-op grant designed to assist small businesses with marketing needs through funding provided by the Anonymous Fund through the Martinsville Area Community Foundation.
For-profit, local small businesses (twenty or fewer employees, including affiliate companies) which contribute to the local tax base (Martinsville or Henry County) are encouraged to apply. Awardees must use approved local marketing providers (Click here for a list of approved providers). Awards may be up to $1,200 per business; however, no award shall exceed 50% of the total marketing project. Funds may not be used for marketing consulting fees or domain registration or hosting. A marketing plan will be required in addition to an application. A marketing guide may be downloaded by clicking here.
"The community foundation is delighted to be in the position to help with this economic development effort and look forward to its positive impact on our local small businesses", said April Haynes, Director of Martinsville Area Community Foundation.
