City of Brentwood Now Accepting Business license Tax City Grant Applications

BRENTWOOD, Calif., February 16, 2010 – The City of Brentwood will start accepting applications for the Business License Tax City Grant Program starting February 22, 2010.  This program allows for twenty percent (20%) of the business license tax collected to be set aside for economic development, for the explicit purpose of business promotion and institutional advertisement for the City of Brentwood.  Approximately $145,847 will be available for the 2010/2011 award cycle.

Organizations, including the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce, may apply annually to the City for these funds on a project by project basis.  Funding priorities will be made to certain business districts, including the Downtown and Brentwood Boulevard.  Also, projects should align with the current City Council Strategic Plan, which can be found on the City’s website. Disbursement of these funds would require City Council approval.  Applications will be available on February 22, 2010 and are due to the City no later than March 31, 2010, for consideration of approval.
