Wisconsin’s New Main Street Bounceback Grants Program
The Main Street Bounceback Grants program provides $10,000 to new or existing businesses and non-profit organizations moving into vacant properties in Wisconsin’s downtowns and commercial corridors. Funds can be used to pay leases or mortgages, operational expenses and other business costs related to the newly opened location. The program is open to new or existing businesses opening a new location or expanding operations in a vacant commercial space as of January 1, 2021. Grant funds are available as part of the American Recovery Plan Act and will be distributed by WEDC’s regional partners.
Businesses must apply through the partner organization for the region in which they are located. A map listing the local contact who is handling grant applications for businesses in that region can be viewed here. Potential applicants can find more info on the Main Street Bounceback Grants Program detail page on WEDC.org here and are encouraged to check out the program overview sheet here.
Another important resource is the new Economic Well-Being section on WEDC.org here, where WEDC outlines their vision for a comprehensive approach to economic development focused on economic well-being for all Wisconsin residents.
