$5,000 Business Pop Up Pilot Grant

Grant Amount: $5,000


The intent of this grant is to allow new or smaller businesses to take more of a “baby-step” approach into the next phase of their business plan, with less fear and upfront costs, creating a more gradual funnel towards business expansion in Coos County. The pilot will start with storefronts in five locations in Coos County: Berlin, Colebrook, Gorham, Lancaster, and Whitefield. Grant awardees will receive up to $5000 towards storefront rent for 3-months, insurance, utilities, signage, and other reasonable expenses.

Grants are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Funding for this program is contingent on availability of CEDC grant resources. 


Eligible grant requests may include an allowance for:

  • Rent for three (3) months at CEDC-approved site location (Up to $2K of grant)
  • Utilities
  • Insurance/Liability coverage
  • Signage
  • Other reasonable uses or expenses as approved
