If you own a business in Cleveland, you know the market can vary based on the time of the day, let alone reading the future market environment. In the heat of competition you are looking to grow your business, but funds can be a strange enemy. The City of Cleveland offers some choices for you from their website:
The options include:
- If you have a storefront business and are in need of signage or site improvements consider the Storefront Renovation Program which is accessible from the link above.
- The Neighborhood Retail Assistance program assists you with grant and loan assistance. Available up to $40,000 for small businesses.
- The WECO Fund assists you with providing financial stability to your employees which is beneficial for seasonal businesses.
- If you are growing your business but do not have the funds to train consider the Workforce Training Grants. This grant service provides you with grant funds for training, you as the employer would be responsible for 50-percent of the costs associated with this program.
Review the site thoroughly for additional options for your business. Cleveland continues to grow, especially with the creation of the Horeshoe Casino, and other small venues around downtown. The Flats is developing, as well as the Medical Mart. Be sure to take advantage of the assistance the city gives you for a competitive edge.
