As a downtown St. Louis firm and an advisor and resource for individuals and businesses in our region, we want to bring awareness to valuable tools available during this challenging time.
The St. Louis Downtown Community Improvement District (CID) has contributed $100,000 to the the Gateway Resilience Fund to help downtown St. Louis businesses affected by COVID-19. The Gateway Resilience Fund makes grants to support employees, essential contractors, and owners of small businesses in the St. Louis region who are experiencing a financial burden due to a disaster or other extreme situation.
The gift from the CID allows the Fund to make $5,000 grants to affected small, locally owned businesses in its 180-block, central business district area, which is roughly north of I-64, south of Convention, west of I-55 and east of 18th Street. Small businesses in this area with at least 5 employees and 2 years in business are eligible to apply.All Insights
