The City of Temecula has launched its Mainstreet Digital Grant Program which will provide training and funding to brick-and-mortar businesses located in Temecula. Program is designed to assist with the creation of a digital presence while driving traffic through paid and non-paid advertising. Businesses that meet the criteria and fulfill all requirements will receive a $10,000 grant.
Temecula Mayor, Zak Schwank says, “It is an exciting time for our city to announce that a half million dollars in grants has been dedicated to our business community. Small businesses are the heart of our local economy. The purpose of this grant is to offer an opportunity for business owners who stayed afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic to receive invaluable education on drive sales and achieve overall growth in the digital age”.
The Mainstreet Digital Grant Program will be hosted in partnership with the Orange County Inland Empire Small Business Development Center (OCIE SBDC). OCIE SBDC will administer the applications and training program.
