  • Rent/Mortgage Assistance Available for Hilltop Businesses

    Venture Out Business Center (VOBC) would like to announce a business grant available to hilltop and greater Jefferson County businesses to help assist with rent or mortgage payments next month (or until funds are depleted). The grant was made possible as the result of a Rapid Response grant from Community Foundation of Madison and Jefferson County and generous donations from local citizens. 


     Businesses can apply by downloading the application from:



    Applicants must be for-profit businesses and must not be in the area(s) which were included in Madison Main Street's recent grant program. This will be mainly businesses on the hilltop and Hanover. The grant will be applied to rent or mortgage in an amount that is dependent on funds available. The program will continue until all funds are depleted. We do expect the demand to be great, but will do our best to allocate funds where they will make the most impact.


    VOBC is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are asking citizens and/or businesses which have not been impacted negatively by COVID-19 to donate to this fund to help struggling businesses in our community. Mail checks to VOBC – 975 Industrial Dr Suite 1, Madison IN 47250 – with "Business Recovery Grant" in the memo. Or call (812) 599-9359 to make a donation by debit/credit card.
