The Business Development Committee has finished accepting applications for the Business Plan Competition. They are looking for new business ideas, or for a current business doing a major expansion in physical size or product line. The grand prize is $25,000: $5,000 will be a grant and $20,000 in a zero interest loan. The winner will also receive a $2,500 credit from Columbia River PUD for an energy audit and upgrades. The major requirement is that the participants must have or will have their business on the main street corridor. Our goal is to support our community and fill up the vacancies on our main street.
If you were not able to apply this year, keep checking back for future Business Plan Competition opportunities!
Thank you all for your support!
