Arts Council joins competition for small business grant

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council just joined the competition and has 4 days to get 250 votes. As of today, Kruse Images and Photography and Shoreline Farm Supply have earned the minimum votes and will go on to apply for the grant. 

Just a few days remain in an eight week race to earn the privilege to compete for a $250,000 small business grant.

Chase and LivingSocial are running Mission: Small Business, a new grant program offering a share of $3 million to small business owners nationwide.  This program will award up to 12 individual grants of $250,000 to provide small businesses with capital and innovative marketing resources needed to make a positive impact on their business and their community.

As of this date, twelve Shoreline businesses are in the running.  In order to qualify each business must earn at least 250 votes from the public by the June 30th deadline.  Businesses who meet the vote minimum are then invited to submit a grant application to be judged by a panel of business experts.  Chase and LivingSocial expect to announce the grant recipients by September 15, 2012.
