Souly Austin invites applicants
Thursday, August 29, 2019 by Tai Moses
The city’s Economic Development Department will be expanding its Souly Austin services with a competitive application process aimed at selecting two additional business districts to be part of the program. Souly Austin helps business districts form merchants associations – the key to a prosperous, culturally rich and inclusive retail zone with plenty of neighborhood character. The two business areas selected will receive technical assistance from Souly Austin in forming a merchants association and a business strategy, and a $20,000 award for the association’s successful launch. The application deadline is Oct. 30. An informational webinar explaining the nuts and bolts of the application process will be aired Sept. 16, 2-3 p.m., here.
