Who's the Next to Get BOOSTED?

Who's the Next to Get BOOSTED?

Milledgeville, GA- BOOST is the Downtown Development Authority’s latest program intended to support small local business and entrepreneurs with funding opportunities. BOOST offers businesses these grants towards various departments such as inventory, professional services, equipment, marketing/advertising etc. BOOST now has over 30 “BOOSTERS” that donate $200 to the program per year. Every quarter, the investment group comes together to review, discuss and vote on the most deserving candidates as well as the amount given for each grant. The grant amounts will start at a minimum of $100 and as much as $1,000. 

Congratulations once again to Blossoms Florists, HairBar, and Amici’s Café for the first set of BOOST grants of $1,000. Last year, BOOST received nine applications for the first round and we hope to see that number double this quarter.
