Downtown Winnipeg BIZ: Memo - The latest information for BIZ Members

Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,

We know members need support to make it through this challenging time. Today, we’re re-launching the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Connect Grant – a grant program to help you build capacity or adapt your business to generate revenue.

As you may recall, the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Connect Grant connects member businesses that need support with Downtown Winnipeg BIZ member experts who can provide it. Many businesses found success in the previous round of Connect Grants. Now, more businesses can benefit from this grant in similar ways.

Even if you’ve received a Connect Grant before, you are still eligible to apply.
