Business Funding Support

Business Promotion Fund Grant Program

The Town Council annually appropriates business promotion funds for General Business & Marketing Promotion grants. 

If selected, Business Promotion Fund Grant recipients must use funds for ONLY marketing purposes deemed to be most advantageous to a broad range of Danville’s business community and anticipated to yield direct and immediate results and encourage collaboration of businesses in Danville. 

Visit the Danville San Ramon News Website for a detailed interview about the Program. 

Funds may not be used to promote or support individual businesses or organizations or require the preparation of specialized studies, reports, etc. 

Preference will be given to applications that thoroughly explain projects, programs and/or events that:

a. Engage consumers with experiential events, and provide collaborative business promotion opportunities 

b. Promote events or cooperative marketing programs through print and/or digital mediums 

c. Incorporate “Live Locally” branding into all marketing efforts, including logos, cyanotypes, website link/mention, templates, Instagram, etc.

will be ending on Sunday October 31, 2021 


The Forward Focus Business Grant Program was approved by Town Council on November 4, 2020, to give much needed financial relief to Danville businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The final application period will close to all (first time and current) applicants on October 31, 2021 (an extension from the original 90-day after grant approval date). Applications for the expense reimbursement grants are funded in ranges from $250 to $5,000. The maximum grant amount per business is based on the grant request and tier criteria.  Applicants are responsible for 100% of purchases and reimbursements will be 75% of eligible and approved costs. 

Applicants who have already received grant funds are not eligible to apply for additional funds during the final phase of the program. Applicants who were awarded a reimbursement grant but who have not submitted the required documentation to receive funding, should do so by October 31 to be eligible for the funding awarded previously. Simply complete: (1) IRS Form W-9 (Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification form) and (2) Grant Reimbursement Request Form (instructions outlined at the bottom of the form) and submit both by midnight October 31, 2021 to and 

Time is running out!  We urge eligible Danville businesses to get in touch with us so that we may help you navigate through the process.
