Business Incentive Grant (BIG)

Hobart’s Run offers funds to new businesses that open in the 500 to 900 blocks of East High Street as part of its Business Incentive Grant (BIG) program.  Eligible businesses will receive up to $1,500 toward their first month’s rent or mortgage payment.  Hobart’s Run welcomes new businesses that will enhance the quality of life for neighborhood residents and contribute to Pottstown’s overall well-being as well as the Borough’s tax base. Naturally, new businesses will need to follow all Borough zoning and code standards.

Hobart’s Run’s goal is to use BIGs to improve economic vitality and encourage a collaborative community among business owners, residents, volunteers, and others on High Street’s east end.

"How Can I Help Hobart's Run?"

There are many ways to get involved – from volunteering for a cleanup, participating in neighborhood meetings, serving as a block captain, or making a financial contribution that will help us fund our community initiatives.

Hobart's Run (a 501(c)(3) neighborhood initiative) was launched by The Hill School to create a clean and safe community; foster inclusivity; provide incentives for home ownership and property pride; and generate quality business development.
