Hand in Hand Program for UpTown Waterloo Businesses

The Hand in Hand program gives UpTown Waterloo businesses the opportunity to apply for extra funding – a maximum of $350 per business – to host events at their business.

Working in closer partnership with businesses, the UpTown Waterloo BIA has a more direct hand in helping each business flourish and benefit from attracting clientele into the core.

Funding is available year round for Hand in Hand.

When submitting Hand in Hand applications please allow 3-4 weeks, in advance of the event date, for approval. 


Are you an UpTown Waterloo business?

The Hand in Hand program is available for UpTown Waterloo businesses only. After applying for Hand in Hand, your business will be notified of approval, and funding will be released once the UpTown BIA receives a final report within 30 days of your event.

Hand in Hand cheques must be made out to the name of the business.

If you are part of the BIA and planning on hosting an event for which you would like to apply for funding, fill out and submit the application below:
