Small Business Grant Form
Published 5:40 pm Thursday, June 25, 2020
Small businesses could be eligible to receive complimentary advertising space during this uncertain time.
Oxford Newsmedia, owner of The Oxford Eagle and Oxford Magazine, is launching a matching marketing grant program supporting recovery advertising for eligible small businesses in Lafayette County.
Businesses can fill out a grant form to apply for the marketing matching program at www.oxfordeagle.com/grant-match.
Applicants will be notified if they are eligible for the matching program within 3 business days. At that time, the Oxford Newsmedia staff contact the business with information on shopping information for their business category and will work with the recipient to develop a strategy to best use the matching advertising in The Oxford Eagle, Oxford Magazine or the website.
Applicants marketing will be matched dollar for dollar with paid investments. For example, if a small business requests a $500 matching program, the business would buy $500 in advertising, and The Oxford Eagle would add $500 for free space or online ad impressions.
Match applications must be submitted by July 31, 2020 and awarded advertising space must be used by Sept. 31, 2020. Matching ad space does not apply toward current contract commitments and does not carry cash value.
