Business Assistance

Edison machine shop students(3)A vital part of our community is a solid base of businesses – from the mom-and-pop corner store to the large employers in our downtown office buildings. The City supports this effort by administering many business-assistance programs that use such tools as grants, loans and tax credits.

City businesses are encouraged to interact with our Neighborhood Service Centers, which provide guidance on such things as safety, compliance with City codes and building relationships with community organizations and merchants associations.
