The application window for Niagara Falls' second round of federally funded small business grants has opened, Community Development Director Seth A. Piccirillo announced this week.
Applications to the Small Business Support Fund are due by Sept. 17. The grants cover up to 50% of the cost of a project.
Interior and exterior renovations are the favored types of projects, according to the fund's website, where the initial letter of intent may be submitted.
The first round of awards in March included $75,000 to DiCamillo Bakery for expansion of its Linwood Avenue headquarters; $50,000 to Garibaldi Square, on Pine Avenue, to create leasable commercial space; and $30,000 to LoxStock & Barrel Saloon, on Niagara Street, for a new kitchen and interior remodeling.
Most of the city is eligible, except for the downtown core.
