Evers Makes Stop In Downtown Fond du Lac

Fond du Lac was the recipient of a visit by Governor Tony Evers on Monday, who was in town to see how the Main Street Bounceback Grant Program is doing.

New or existing businesses are eligible for $10,000 grants if they move into vacant commercial space. A total of 5 businesses on Main St. in Fond du Lac have taken advantage of the grants.

Evers announced back in April that $50 million of the state’s share of the American Recovery Plan Act would be used to create the grant program. The program is open to any business that started after January 1, 2021 as well as any existing businesses that are looking for a new location or to expand their operation. The funds are available until June 20, 2022.
