Ducktown Business Micro Grants

The Ducktown Business Micro-Grants are an entrepreneurial support system committed to seeing the growth and development of underserved populations with an emphasis on minority-owned businesses in the City of Atlantic City's Ducktown Neighborhood.  

Grants support projects that strengthen and revitalize small businesses with five or less employees for:

  • Financial Relief: provide a source of funds that can be used for various purposes such as covering operational costs, purchasing equipment, or investing in marketing efforts.


  • Business Development: support business growth by allowing owners to invest in areas that might otherwise be out of reach. This could include website development, digital marketing campaigns, staff training, or product development

  • Innovation and Creativity: give businesses the financial boost needed to experiment with new products, services, or business models. This can lead to increased revenue streams and a unique value proposition.


  • Community Engagement: help businesses engage more effectively with Ducktown community through events, workshops, and collaborations. This strengthens the business's relationship with its customers and fosters a sense of belonging in our neighborhood.

  • Job Creation:  expand their operations, hire more employees.


  • Stability and Sustainability: provide a buffer during lean times, helping businesses weather economic downturns and maintain their presence in the neighborhood.


  • Entrepreneurial Spirit: encourage entrepreneurship by making it more feasible for individuals to start their own businesses.


  • Preserving Identity: continue to offer distinctive products and services, preserving Ducktown’s identity in the face of urbanization and gentrification.
