Award Announcement

The Alliance for Pioneer Square is pleased to announce the award of funding to 35 projects totaling $170,000 through the Pioneer Square Small Business Support program. 

The Pioneer Square Small Business Support program, made possible by $150,000 in funding from Historic South Downtown  and an additional $20,000 from the  Sounders SC Rave Foundation ,  will support businesses in creating, sustaining, or enhancing an active online presence. A total of 86 applications were  received by the Alliance  in this award cycle.

The Alliance for Pioneer Square is pleased to support the resilience of Pioneer Square businesses and nonprofits. This opportunity will allow 35 businesses to continue operations and also set them up for success during the current reopening period. Businesses will be more prepared to adapt to future situations that require a more robust online presence.

“The Pioneer Square Small Business Support Program is an important part of the Alliance’s initiative to address critical needs to help stabilize our neighborhood’s small businesses so that they are able to remain in operation, maintain employment levels, and sustain workplace opportunities during the current COVID-19 pandemic”, said Lisa Howard, Executive Director at the Alliance for Pioneer Square.

A Community Review Panel, with assistance from the Alliance staff, reviewed each of the 86 applications received and voted on a final 35 projects to receive funding.
