Arvada Economic Development Association, Small Business Grant Program is now accepting applications!

The Arvada Economic Development Association (AEDA) Board of Directors approved additional funding for the 50/50 matching grant program and is now accepting applications. Businesses and property owners may apply for the grant anytime during the rolling funding cycle application period based on available funds. AEDA created the Small Business Grant Program to support existing Arvada businesses and property owners who wish to make capital improvements to the exterior of their properties, and consequently, to the Arvada community. This 50/50 matching grant program leverages AEDA funds and private sector investment to enhance commercial properties in Arvada. Applicants who wish to be considered in this quarter must apply by 5:00pm on Tuesday, March 31. To apply, go to assistance and download a program overview/application.


Since the Arvada Small Business Grant program was established in July, 2011, the AEDA Board has allocated $860,855 to 78 Arvada businesses. These matching grants have resulted in over $2 million in private project investment. “Essentially this program gives so many Arvada businesses the opportunity to make their capital improvements a reality. It is a ‘win-win’ for Arvada. I am looking forward to seeing what projects will benefit this year,” said Paul Heller, President, Arvada Economic Development Association.
