Goal of the Business Improvement Grant

The Jade District works to support and root small businesses in place that serve the residents and community in the Jade District. This program is designed to be transparent, accessible, and equitable. Our goal is to keep the character and stability of the community that currently lives in the Jade District. This grant will fund improvement projects that serve that goal.
