When the Town took over Applefest after the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce dissolved in 2020, there was a guarantee that profits from the festival would be used to support businesses and the festival. After two successful events, the Applefest Business Grant is ready to start giving back!
The grant is designed to offer a variety of options for business owners so that businesses can take advantage of the support they most need. The 2023 grant has funds earmarked for business signage, marketing and business education, including a refresh of a business plan through Region 10. Applications are available on the Town’s website here or by going to the Document Center and then “Community Information & Resources.” Paper copies of the application can be picked up at Town Hall or emailed to you.
Town Clerk/Economic Development Coordinator Jess Shelton can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 970-856-3123 ext. 111 for questions on the grant program.
