In our city, small business is big business.

LakewoodAlive is pleased to partner with the City of Lakewood to host a Lakewood Small Business Incentive Workshop on Wednesday, April 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Taco Tontos (13321 Madison Avenue). This free workshop for businesses and building owners aims to educate attendees regarding programs and resources available through the City of Lakewood to help you open or grow your business.

Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about the following incentive programs at their disposal:

  • Storefront Renovation Program: Provides businesses and building owners with a 40% reimbursement up to $30,000 on exterior building materials for the renovation of Lakewood storefronts.
  • Facade Improvement Program: Provides businesses a 50% reimbursement of up to $2,000 to pay for new signage or awnings.
  • Lakewood Small Business Grant Program: Provides business owners seeking to locate in or expand in Lakewood with a 100% forgivable loan up to $50,000 for start-up or expansion costs.

The Lakewood Small Business Incentive Workshop will feature a panel discussion comprised of key players involved in the process. This workshop will discuss the process from start to finish, highlighting pros and cons so that attendees can develop a strong understanding of the available programs.
