Submit Your Discover MoCo Listing for the Online Sales & Telework Grant Program
Montgomery County, Maryland County Executive Marc Elrich announced a new grant program for Montgomery County small businesses to help them promote their products and services prior to the holiday shopping season. Applications to the Online Sales and Telework Grant Program will be available from November 12th through midnight on November 19, 2021. Grants of up to $10,000 each will be available. (Each applicant will receive a pro-rata share of the $789,000 of total funding available. Therefore, the actual grant amounts will be determined by the total number of eligible applicants.)
“Small businesses are the foundation of our economy and many count on year-end retail sales to survive. We are committed to assisting them in as many ways as possible. This is a great opportunity to help with their holiday and winter marketing,” said County Executive Elrich. “Visit Montgomery has a strong track record helping our restaurants and others through their effective use of technology and promotion.” The Online Sales and Telework grant funding was appropriated to the Maryland Department of Commerce under the American Recovery Act and will be distributed through a partnership between Montgomery County and Visit Montgomery pending County Council approval.
