    offers micro grants

    The Downtown Rutland Partnership is taking applications for its 2013 micro business grants.

    Five grants of $1,000 each will be awarded to business and property owners within the downtown special benefits district looking to make purchases that will strengthen their businesses.

    Previous grants have funded upgrades including computer systems, exterior signs and more efficient equipment. The grants may fund up to half of the purchase price.

    Applications, which are available from www.rutlanddowntown.com, or from the DRP office at 48 Merchants Row, are due in no later than 4:30 p.m. May 3.

    The grant program, entering its fourth year, was inspired by the 2009 Downtown Market Study report.

    For more information, contact DRP Executive Director Michael Coppinger at 773-9380.
