What We Do

Starting a Business

The DDA offers services to those looking to start a business in the downtown area. We can assist with locating a property, navigating the business license process and if needed, the building rehabilitation process. We have grants for starting your business and getting your location ready. There are also a number of state & federal programs available, depending on the location.

Growing Your Business

A number of the programs available to start up businesses can be utilized for those seeking to expand. The Façade Grant (if it has been two years since the last grant was funded), Enterprise Zone Incentives (for fitting out more space) and marketing your new or expanded services.

Promoting Your Business

DDA Staff is available to assist with promoting your business. Whether it’s advertising in the downtown insert, boosting social media posts or electronic billboard ad space, we’re here to help. The DDA offers Ribbon Cuttings for new businesses, contact us to schedule one.
