We’ve given out a total of $97,727.40 in grant support to local businesses this year. CommonSense Consulting, Urban Design Perspective, and Du Nord Craft Spirits are just a few of the businesses that received funding from LCC. They used the $5,000 they each received toward the redevelopment and ownership of the historic Coliseum building.
“This development structure and approach is significant as there will be four partners, three of which are BIPOC who will own more than 59% of the building collectively,” Alicia Belton of Urban Design Perspective said. Janice Dowling of Common Sense Consulting said the grant was crucial in helping to purchase legal advice to review the documents associated with this deal, and to form a new corporate, SHAKE Incorporated.
“Without of the funds provided, we would not have had the ability to pay for the required legal services without using company profits. It decreased stress as an owner, increased my confidence and ability to use the best legal services available.”
We’re so excited to see our community rebuilding and businesses like these determined to make it better than what it was. When businesses in our community are supported, our community is uplifted.
