Together, it has so much meaning than just one month ago. As we navigate these uncertain times, we want you to know that you we are here for you. Downtown Traverse City employs nearly 5,000 community members and is beloved my millions. But most of all, it is beloved by our community as a safe space, that is comfortable, and inviting. The DDA has assisted in several initiatives in the last few weeks to provide various resources to the Downtown community, provide an influx of purchases at businesses, and launch programs to assist small businesses.
We are pleased to announce that the DDA recently received a $5,000 grant from the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation. We intend to leverage these dollars to launch initiatives that provide direct support to downtown businesses and also provide support to those in need in our community. Downtown will be back, because we have their backs. We Are Downtown, Together.
