COVID-19 Small Business Recovery Grants

Jeffersonville Main Street partnered with Patronicity to raise funds for a COVID-19 Small Business Recovery Grant Program to help small businesses in Downtown Jeffersonville endure and recovery from the impacts of the pandemic.
Thanks to the support of the community we were able to raise more than $15,000 for this project.  Every dollar raised was reinvested into our small business community and as a result we were able to help 23 small businesses during these extremely challenging times.  Thanks to everyone who supported this project!
