Grow Greene County Gaming Corporation has funded a project as a Greene County retail stimulus during COVID-19. They provided funds to partner with Jefferson Matters: Main Street, Jefferson Area Chamber and Greene County Development Corporation who in turn contacted Greene County businesses most affected. Gift certificates/cards worth $300 were purchased from each qualifying business. These certificates are ready to be given away on the local radio station. KGRA FM 98.9 will conduct the free give-away of the $25 gift certificates during the month of May. Thirty businesses are participating. The goal was to get funds directly into the hands of businesses most affected and promote shopping local.
Business criteria included:
- Greene County owned business
- 10 or less employees
