Greenville Economic Development Coordinator Bill Walker said the city is ready to help businesses interested in the grant. Walker said the grant is different as it is going directly to businesses. The City of Greenville acts as the facilitator for the program. Local businesses who are interested should contact the city. Officials will provide you with application forms.
