"The funding is from the Business License fee revenue," said Jill Bergman, town economic development coordinator, in an e-mail.
The funds will be given to groups that will most benefit the Danville business community, and that could be expected to get good, fast results. The purpose of the funds is not to promote specific businesses or organizations.
Preference will be given to requests that provide matching funds, and to those that target both residents and folks outside the community to make everyone aware of businesses in town and encourage people to patronize them. Funds have been given in the past to the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce, Discover Danville Association, the Museum of the San Ramon Valley and the Livery.
Applications are due to Danville Town Offices by 5 p.m., Friday, April 18. Request applications on the town Web site (www.ci.danville.ca.us) or contact Bergman at 314-3369.
