Local businesses struggling to recover from the pandemic will have another tool in hand to help them.

  The Lynden Tribune and Ferndale Record are offering a dollar-for-dollar marketing grant program available to businesses to help them get people back inside their doors and buying products and services.

  We have up to $100,000 in grants available, in amounts of $200 up to $5,000 per locally owned business, to be spent on marketing with us by Sept. 30, 2020. It’s on a dollar-for-dollar matching basis and can be used for both print and digital advertising.

  Applications are now being taken. If you would like your business to be considered, please contact your Tribune or Record advertising representative or you can go online and fill out the application.

  Together, let’s see our local businesses that have been so impacted by the coronavirus be able to come back stronger than ever. And the investment in marketing by Lewis Publishing Co. helps us to carry on our journalism role in the community as well. Thank you.
