Need Help Marketing your Business due to COVID-19?

The Town of Fairfield's Office of Community & Economic Development is partnering with Fairfield Video Group/CT Biz Tour to provide customized promotional videos to Fairfield small business owners at a discounted rate. Under this program, brick & mortar establishments located within the Town of Fairfield with five or fewer employees may be eligible to receive 50% reimbursement for these video production and marketing expenses up to a maximum of $450.


This program is intended to assist Fairfield small businesses, specifically those engaged in business to consumer transactions, expand their customer base and recover market share following disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The program is funded through a grant from the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and administered by the Town of Fairfield's Department of Community & Economic Development. The applicant must be organized as a for-profit business, be in good standing and be physically located within the Town of Fairfield for at least six (6) months. Further, the business must not have received other grant funds for the same purpose or be ineligible to receive federal assistance.
