DRC Small Business Assistance Program

Record-Chronicle Local Business Stimulus Program

The Record-Chronicle is establishing a $250,000 set-aside target to assist local businesses with marketing and advertising services during this historically challenging economic window related to the COVID-19 crisis.

The program will provide a dollar-for-dollar match for qualifying and approved plans. For example, $1,000 investment from a local business will earn a matching $1,000 by the Record-Chronicle – an effective 50% discount to the local business.

Local Denton County businesses will earn priority approval.

Matching funds are available for print (DRC Print +e-Editions, Denton County Magazine, etc.), digital (dentonrc.com, opt-in newsletters, etc.), and custom marketing tools.
