The City of Vancouver is working with the Vancouver Economic Development Commission (VEDC) on the Vancouver Restoration Fund, a project aimed at providing financial assistance to downtown businesses whose insurance does not cover specific losses sustained by the riots.
The VEDC, the city’s economic development agency, is coordinating the fund, including assessing applications from businesses that need help and accepting donations from businesses that want to help. Businesses can go to vancouvereconomic.com/vancouver_restoration_fund for details.
The goal is to generate a fund of $150,000 to provide financial support to impacted businesses and ensure they remain healthy and viable. Businesses can apply for up to $7,000.
