Business Resources


During a special meeting held via Zoom on Friday, December 18, 2020, the Danville Town Council approved actions to provide additional aid to Danville businesses hard hit by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Restrictions placed on small businesses as a result of the pandemic prompted the council to examine additional ways to provide support.   At the December 18, 2020 meeting, the council approved three actions designed to assist affected businesses. 

  • Approved the appropriation of $275,000 to fund Phase 2 of the Forward Focus COVID-19 Business Grant program 
  • Approved a partnership with Townsend Public Affairs to establish a Business Assistance Program that provides FREE guidance for Danville businesses seeking to access available funding resources from the anticipated COVID-19 federal stimulus relief.  
  • Adopted an urgency ordinance establishing a temporary cap of 15% on commission, fees, and costs charged by third-party food delivery services such as DoorDash, Grubhub, etc. This cap would affect restaurants in the Town of Danville for the remainder of the pandemic.
