Brick and mortar businesses in Milton can still apply for a one-time grant

Brick and mortar businesses in Milton who are looking to enhance their online presence still have a chance to apply for the Digital Main St. Program.

Back in August, the Town of Milton received a $25,000 grant from the province to extend the program aimed to help local small businesses.

The funding from Digital Main Street’s Ontario Grants Program will help the Digital Service Squad (DSS) continue their service which provides trained digital specialists to local small businesses to help them adopt online technologies and digitally transform their sales, marketing and back-office operations.

“Small businesses are an integral part of our local economy, local identity and the heritage of Milton,” said Milton Mayor Gord Krantz about the program back in August.

“Milton’s Digital Service Squad ensures business owners continue to have access to free resources and the technical support they need to not only recover through this pandemic but to continue modernizing services for years to come.”

This program will allow more qualifying small businesses including those that are located beyond downtown main streets, to be eligible for the grant. While not-for-profits and co-working spaces are not eligible to apply, they may still be able to receive assistance from the Digital Service Squad.

The one-time grant of $2,500 is administered by the Ontario BIA Association (OBIAA) and not by Digital Main Street. Applications will continue to be accepted until Nov. 30 or until grant funds are exhausted.
