The City of South Bend is seeking applications for a grant program designed to help local businesses develop or enhance their online presence, marketplace, or capabilities.
The program is a partnership between the City of South Bend’s Department of Community Investment and Code Works, a digital product studio that specializes in designing, building, and launching digital products.
The Digital Storefront program aims to support businesses that could benefit from an update to their web presence but may not have had the time or funding to consider it to-date. Code Works aims to work with the grantees to consider effective and efficient solutions to meet their goals. Applications are due April 2, with work expected to commence after the businesses have been chosen.
Any South Bend-based business from any sector can apply – whether it has no current online presence, is just starting to employ more digital capabilities, or is seeking more advanced support. Franchises are not eligible. To apply, click here.
