Downtown Business E-Commerce Grant

Updated May 20, 2020 - Applications now accepted for projects initiated prior to March 15, 2020. 

The City of New Braunfels has approved an allocation of funds to assist Downtown businesses in the development of e-commerce systems.  With the recent rise in curbside and to-go retail, the transition to e-commerce has become a more important aspect of retail operations in Downtown. 

This grant provides a reimbursement of up to $2000 for businesses that add an e-commerce component to their business operations.  The grant will reimburse up to $2000 of costs associated with the set-up and first year subscription to an e-commerce platform.  

In addition to new e-commerce project undertakings, businesses who have already established an e-commerce function in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (projects undertaken after March 15, 2020) may apply for reimbursement.
