The City of Craig’s ability to provide quality municipal services and infrastructure to the Craig community is directly related to the economic success of the local business community. In order to assist the City in meeting its economic goals, the City will continue the City of Craig Business Grant Program for 2021.
This two-track program provides grants to businesses via a competitive application review process.
• TRACK 1: The City will consider providing Site Enhancement Grants to businesses that wish to install traditional site improvements such as façade improvements, landscaping, and other architectural upgrades.
• TRACK 2: The City will consider Economic Development Grants to businesses that undertake capital investments (excluding working capital) that bring one or more of the following to Craig:
o Addition of jobs to the local economy
o A unique amenity
o A region of draw to the City Core or other commercial district
o Diversification to the City’s economic base
Grants will be awarded in any amount up to $25,000. Grant requests are required to include matching funds from the business in the amount of 50% of the total project cost. Funding requests in excess of $10,000 will be considered for projects that provide exceptional benefit and may be subject to additional applicant criterium.
Smaller projects are also eligible as there is no minimum. Craig City Council has allocated $85,000 to fund the Craig Business Grant Program for 2021. All submitted grant proposals must clearly articulate how each project effectively enhances the City of Craig.
