Forward Together: Ponca City Development Authority
Staff at PCDA had a busy week. There were new products being manufactured (keep reading), new businesses looking at moving to Ponca City (nope, we can't talk about them), the announcement of new quality of life things and of course, the final trainings to get ready for the small business and non-profit grants which go live next Friday, April 1st.
No, this isn't an April Fools thing. Yes, small business and non-profit grants from the City of Ponca City are happening. Your business or non-profit has the entire month of April to apply for up to $10,000 in grant funds for your COVID based expenses. There are some guidelines and caveats, which you can read Here for small business and Here for non-profits. Bookmark these links as they will go live for the application on April 1st. For small businesses, you have to have a physical presence in Ponca City. For non-profits, if you are a United Way member, you are not eligible for this grant. More info on the flyers and application website. Or give us a call at the PCDA office and staff will answer ALL the questions, 580.765.7070.
