Santa Rosa Improvement Vitalization Enterprise


Santa Rosa County is reviving a grant program this summer designed to help ease some of the financial burden that updating your small business can bring.

If you are a small business owner anywhere in Santa Rosa County, you may be eligible for grant funds up to $10,000 for exterior facade improvements, including signage, through the 2024 StRIVE grant.

Grant applications are open May 1 through July 2024 or until funds are exhausted.
