Small Business Support
Through its administration of the Jerome Gun Hill Business Improvement District and support of local merchant associations, MPC is connected to thousands of small businesses. MPC provides support through connecting businesses with resources available to help their businesses grow and thrive. Potential resources include: workforce development and local community hiring, access to capital, financial education, storefront improvement grants and legal services, to name a few.
Need help starting or running your business? We’re here to help! Through our organization, we can provide and connect you to services and resources that will help your business take off, operate more smoothly, and grow at the pace that you want it to. Looking for access to capital, workforce development programs, or storefront improvement grants? Contact us to get access to these services and so much more.
Does your business fall into any of these boundaries? Become a member of one of our Merchants Associations! Our Merchants Associations exist to improve the general quality of life of their members and businesses within the boundaries of a particular commercial corridor. They are focused on maintaining and enhancing the shopping district by providing marketing/promotional campaigns, merchant meetings, security and beautification projects that will lead to increased foot traffic in that area. The Associations seek to improve the business conditions of all of their members, and to help all of our small businesses achieve success.
