The Small Business Grant Program was created to assist small businesses in Piqua with growing and scaling their business after surviving the COVID-19 pandemic. The Small Business Grant Program is a façade improvement and building renovation program available to businesses and non-residential property owners in downtown Piqua and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Of the 25 Small Business Grants awarded, 7 projects have been completed and fully reimbursed, 5 projects are in progress and partially reimbursed, and 13 projects are in various phases, but not having requested reimbursement. To date, almost half of the $500,000 allocated towards the program has been distributed.
